  1. Preheat oven to high broil. Peel off outer skin of tomatillos, wash, and place them on a baking sheet along with the jalapeno. Broil for 5-10 minutes until the tops are starting to get charred. Remove from the oven and let them cool down a bit.

  3. Add chicken thighs to a soup pot with tomatillo sauce. Cover and turn heat up to medium. Cook for 15-20 minutes until chicken is tender.
  4. Remove from heat and using two forks, or a fork and knife, break chicken thighs up into bite-sized chunks.
  5. Return pot to medium heat and add cabbage, onion, stock, and seasonings and stir to combine evenly. Cook for 30-40 minutes until cabbage is tender.
