Tomatillos are plentiful this year so I’m always up for trying a new recipe. I love my standard Posole recipe with pork, but liked this idea with chicken and tomatillos. Tomatillos have almost a citrus-like taste to them so it pairs well with chicken and posole.
The soup was great fresh and I’ve frozen a large batch for a cold winter’s night!
CHICKEN POSOLE WITH TOMATILLOS
Place chicken stock, onion, chicken, garlic, jalapeño and hominy in a large stockpot and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 35 minutes or until chicken is done. Remove chicken from bones; shred. Stir in pureed tomatillos and salt; cook for 5 minutes or until heated. Stir in chicken, and serve with cilantro, sour cream, and lime wedges.
