Servings: 4 to 6
- 2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs
- 1 pound tomatillos, washed and husks removed
- 1 onion, chopped
- 3 jalapeno peppers, chopped (remove seeds and ribs for a less spicy soup)
- 6 cups chicken broth
- 1 tablespoon dried oregano
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt or sea salt
- 1/2 cup chopped cilantro (stems and leaves)
- 1 can (28 ounces) hominy, rinsed

Here's how to make it:
- Put the chicken, tomatillos, onion, peppers, broth, oregano and salt in a large soup pot. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low and simmer, covered, about 35 to 40 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through and tender. Remove chicken, shred and set aside.
- Add the cilantro to the broth and blend with an immersion blender until smooth. (This could also be done in a blender.)
- Put the chicken back into the soup along with the hominy. Cook another 10 to 15 minutes. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Serve with desired garnishes.
