Cook the chicken
In a medium sauce pot, add the chicken and enough water to cover by 2 inches, making sure the breasts or thighs are separated, and bring to a boil. Cook over high heat until opaque and cooked through, 5 to 7 minutes. Using a slotted spoon or tongs, transfer the chicken to a plate to cool. Reserve 1 cup [2 cups] chicken cooking water for the chile verde. Using a fork, shred the chicken. While the chicken is cooking and cooling, start the chile verde.
Prep the onion; cook the chile verde
- Peel and coarsely chop enough onion to measure 1 cup [2 cups].
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the onion, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until starting to soften, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the chili spice blend and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add the tomatillo simmer sauce and reserved chicken cooking water and bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. Cook, stirring occasionally, until thickened slightly, 3 to 4 minutes.
Add the shredded chicken and continue simmering until the mixture is the consistency of a thick stew, 2 to 4 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper. While the chile verde is cooking, prepare the slaw.
Make the cabbage-celery slaw
- Cut away any core from the cabbage; thinly slice the cabbage.
- Thinly slice the celery.
- Coarsely chop the cilantro; set aside half for garnish.
In a large bowl, toss together the cabbage, celery, pumpkin seeds, apple cider vinegar, 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] oil, and half the cilantro. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Transfer the chicken chile verde to individual bowls. Garnish with the remaining cilantro and as much cabbage-celery slaw as you like. Serve the remaining slaw on the side.
- Shred the chicken.
- Measure the onion.
- Assemble the slaw.
- Add the garnishes.
