    Directions

    1. Oven at 375 degrees. Place the chicken thighs onto a lined baking sheet and bake for approx 35-45 minutes until cooked through. Allow to cool a bit before handling. Once cooled you can go ahead and remove the skin and shred the chicken. {keep your oven on to bake the enchiladas once assembled}
    2. Also while the chicken is cooking you can roast everything for the tomatillo sauce! Place all the ingredients on a lined baking sheet with a couple drizzles of olive oil, salt and pepper. Roast for 30-35 minutes until a light golden color starts on the veggies and everything is softened. Allow to cool.
    3. Once the sauce is cooled go ahead and pop it in a food processor along with the juice of a lime and blend until smooth. If it seems a little thick for your liking add just a little bit of water. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
