Chicken with Tomatillo Sauce

This is whats for dinner tonight. I got the recipe from my Rachael Ray magazine. I really love tomatillo sauces and flavors. The recipe is super easy and most of the cooking time, is spent in the oven. Which busy moms, like myself, appreciate. Enjoy!

Ingredients:
  • 8 chicken drumsticks
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 pound tomatillos, husks removed
  • 1/2 white onion, sliced
  • 1 small jalapeño chile, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, peeled
  • 1/4 teaspoon sugar
  • 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
  • 8 corn tortillas, cut into strips .

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 425°. On a baking sheet, toss the chicken with 1 tablespoon oil and season with salt and pepper. Bake until browned and cooked through, about 40 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile, in a saucepan, combine the tomatillos and just enough water to cover. Bring to a boil, then simmer until tender,a bout 5 minutes. using a slotted spoon, transfer the tomatillos to a food processor; reserve 1/3 cup cooking water. Puree the tomatillos with the onion, jalapeño, garlic and sugar.

  3. In a skillet, heat the remaining 2 tablespoons oil over medium-high heat. Add the tomatillo puree and cook, stirring, for 10 minutes. Stir in the reserved cooking water and 1 tablespoon cilantro. Top the tortilla strips with the chicken, sauce and remaining 1 tablespoon cilantro.
