Tomatillo Chicken

I saw this recipe over the weekend on Everyday Food and just had to make it.  It was easy and one of the most flavorful dishes I have ever made – really! Those little green tomatillos really pack a flavorful punch.  Yum :)

Ever seen tomatillos before? They have a husk and are related to the gooseberry.  I have used them before in salsa verde, but never cooked a whole dish with them.  I only had 1 1/2 lbs, so I added a little water to the pan to give the chicken some extra liquid to cook in.

I only used 1 large jalapeño and it turned very mild in the dish, there was no real heat which was perfect for me.

What the heck is hominy? Well, I have *a lot* leftover so I will be finding lots of new ways of using it over the next week or so.
