Instructions

  • Combine the chicken pieces and stock in a pot and bring to a boil over high heat.
  • Reduce the heat and simmer covered for 45 minutes.
  • Drain the chicken and keep it warm, reserving the stock.
  • Using a fork, hold the poblano chiles over a gas flame or electric burner until the skin is blistered and blackened in places.
  • Place in a paper bag and allow to rest for 20 minutes.
  • Peel the peppers, slit them lengthwise, and remove the seeds and veins.
  • Working in small batches, pulverize the pumpkin seeds in an electric blender or food processor.
  • Combine the poblano chiles, ground pumpkin seeds, walnuts, almonds, onion, garlic, tomatillos, coriander, salt, and pepper in a bowl and mix to combine.
  • Working in batches, puree the mixture in an electric blender or food processor, adding enough of the reserved chicken stock to make a thick paste.
  • Heat the oil in a large skillet over high heat and add the sauce.
  • Cook, stirring constantly, for 3 to 4 minutes.
  • Thin to the consistency of heavy cream with the chicken stock if necessary.
  • Reduce the heat to very low, transfer the chicken to the skillet, and simmer covered until the chicken is very tender, 15 to 20 minutes.
