   into 10-12 frying pan over medium-high heat. Add
   chicken and brown, turning as needed, 8-12 minutes.
   Add tomatillos, onion, chilies, and garlic. Cover and
   simmer, turning chicken occasionally, until meat is no
   longer pink at thigh bone (cut to test), about 30
   minutes. With a slotted spoon, transfer chicken to a
   platter; keep warm. 2. Boil sauce, uncovered, over
   high heat until most of the liquid evaporates, 6-8
   minutes. Pour sauce over chicken. Sprinkle with
   cilantro. Add salt and pepper to taste.
