Susie-Q Stew

I was having lunch with a friend the other day and she was describing this southwestern dish she likes to make and it just sounded so good I had to try it. Love the flavors! This is a keeper!


1 medium onion, chopped
12 medium tomatillos (cleaned) and quartered
4-5 medium red potatoes (skin on) and quartered
boneless skinless chicken thighs (one package 6-8), cut into chunks

1 cup loosely packed cilantro
pickled jalapenos

Heat oven to 400 degrees

Spread the onion over the bottom of an oven proof Dutch oven. Sprinkle with salt. Continue with layers of the chicken thighs, cilantro, tomatillos, potatoes, sprinkling a teeny bit of salt over each layer before moving on to the next.

Scatter 1/4 cup sliced canned pickled jalapenos (nacho slices work too) over the whole thing, then drizzle on 2 T jalapeno packing juice. Next time I will use more jalapenos as we like spicy!

Set the lid in place and bake for 45 minutes. Remove the lid and bake 15 to 20 minutes longer to reduce the juices. Spoon directly from the pot onto
