In a pot, cook the chicken, season to taste, add its point of salt and let it cook for approximately 20 minutes, when they are ready, remove them and let them cool. Shred and reserve.To prepare the green sauce, cook the tomatillos and chiles in enough water, boil until the tomatillos have changed color. When they are ready, blend the tomatoes, chiles, onion, garlic and coriander.

Season with a cube of chicken bouillon and seasonings, check the salt.
