How to Make Texican Smothered Chicken
1Cut pablano and jalapeno peppers, tomatillos and onion in half. Place on a baking sheet and place under a low broiler for about 7-10 just to char slightly.
2Place charred veggies in a food processor and pulse just a few times. You want chopped veggies, not pureed.
3Season chicken on both sides with your favorite seasonings, I like to use granulated garlic and onion powder and black pepper. Lightly brown on both sides in about 1 tablespoon of olive oil.
4Pour charred veggies over chicken.
5To you skillet add canned tomatoes, 1/2 c. of water or chicken stock, chili powder, cumin, paprika, granulated garlic, Worcestershire and lemon juice and mix well.
6Simmer uncovered for about 30 min.
7Serve over spanish rice, top with a Mexican crumbling cheese.
8NOTE: This can also be cooked in a slow cooker and the chicken shredded, add uncooked instant rice, or pre-cooked long grain rice to pot once chicken is done.
