Chicken Tomatillo Chili

READY IN: 1hr 15mins




  • Add oil to pot. Over medium heat, sauté chicken, season with salt, cook until no longer pink. About 3-4 minutes. Remove chicken from pot, set aside.
  • In the mean time, in a food processor, make a flavor paste. Combine tomatillos, green chilies and jalapeño and blend until thick & smooth. May need to make 2 batches.
  • Add more oil if desired, add onions and garlic, sauté until tender, about 5 minutes. Careful not to burn the garlic. Add chicken back to pot. Add cumin and coriander. Stir.
  • Add the flavor paste, green chilies, chicken broth and beans to the cooked chicken pieces.
  • Simmer for at least 45 minutes or until desired thickness is achieved. I prefer to simmer longer, for up to 2 hours.
  • Top with cilantro at serving.
  • Serve with warm torn flour tortillas or crispy tortilla chips.
