"This makes extra sauce, which is easy to freeze and use for more chicken, or even enchiladas. And since I made this for my family of three, if you want to increase the recipe to say 4 or 6, just increase the chicken and marinade but leave the chile verde sauce quantities the same. If you have no immediate use for the extra sauce, freeze it for later."

Step 1

Marinate the chicken with the ingredients for chicken for at least 1 hour.

Step 2

To prepare sauce, saute onions in lard until softened. Add remaining sauce ingredients and simmer until peppers are tender. Allow mixture to cool and puree in batches in a food processor. If necessary, add water to yield 1 quart total. Set aside.

Step 3

Grill chicken over hot coals until cooked through. Serve with warmed sauce spooned over. Freeze any remaining sauce (it's good for chicken again, or also enchiladas, etc.).
