Beer-Braised Chicken Verde
Ingredients
  • 1  tablespoon  canola oil or vegetable oil
  • 1  cup  chopped onion (1 large)
  • 5  cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4  cup  unsalted butter
  • 1  teaspoon  ground cumin
  • 1  teaspoon  ground coriander
  • 1  teaspoon  chili powder
  • 1  teaspoon  dried Mexican oregano or dried oregano, crushed
  • 1/4  teaspoon  salt
  • 1 12  ounce bottle  Mexican beer (such as Modelo Especial or Pacifico)
  • 1 11 - 12  ounce can  tomatillos, drained
  • 2 4 - 4 1/2 ounce can  diced green chile peppers
  • 1 1/2  pounds  chicken breast tenderloins
Directions

1. In a 4-quart Dutch oven, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add onion and garlic; cook and stir for 3 minutes. Add butter, cumin, coriander, chili powder, oregano, and salt. Cook and stir until butter melts.

2. Add beer, tomatillos, and chile peppers. Bring to boiling. Add chicken. Return to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, about 15 minutes or until chicken is tender and no longer pink, stirring every 5 minutes to break up the tomatillos. Using a slotted spoon, transfer chicken from the cooking liquid to a cutting board. Gently boil the cooking liquid, uncovered, about 10 minutes or until thickened, stirring occasionally. Meanwhile, using two forks, pull chicken apart into shreds.

3. Place chicken in a medium bowl. Add 1 cup of the reduced cooking juices; stir to moisten. Use chicken mixture as filling for quesadillas or tacos; pass the remaining cooking juices.
