How to Make Green Tomatillo Chicken

  2. Pour oil into 10-12" frying pan over medium-high heat; add chicken and brown, turning as needed, 8-12 minutes.
  3. Add tomatillos, onion, chiles, and garlic; cover and simmer, turning chicken occasionally, until meat is no longer pink at thigh bone (cut to test), about 30 minutes.
