25 minPrep


  • 2 pkgs Daring Original Plant Chicken Pieces
  • 7 cups vegetarian broth
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 pound tomatillos, husked and halved
  • 1 small white onion, quartered
  • 2 poblano chiles, cored, seeded, and quartered
  • 2 jalapeños, seeded and quartered
  • 4 large garlic cloves, smashed
  • 1/2 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1 tbsp oregano
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 3 cans hominy, drained
  • Shredded iceberg lettuce, sliced radishes, avocado, sour cream, and a lime wedge for garnishing
  • Serve with tortilla chips

Step 1

Cook the Daring Original Plant Chicken Pieces by preheating a nonstick skillet on high, then reducing to medium heat. Lightly coat the pan with 1 tbsp oil and cook 5 to 6 minutes, turning occasionally. Pieces are done when golden brown on both sides. 

Step 2

Transfer the Daring Plant Chicken pieces to a plate and shred. Set aside.  

Step 3

In a blender, combine the halved tomatillos with the quartered onion, poblanos and jalapeños, smashed garlic, chopped cilantro, and oregano. Pulse until coarsely chopped, scraping down the sides. 

Step 4

With the machine on, add the vegetable broth and puree until smooth. Season the tomatillo puree with salt and pepper to taste. 

Step 5

In the same nonstick skillet, heat the remaining vegetable oil on medium heat until shimmering. Add the tomatillo puree and cook, stirring occasionally, until the sauce turns a deep green (about 12 minutes). 

Step 6

In a separate pot, add the remaining 6 cups of broth, your cooked tomatillo puree, and the hominy, and bring to a simmer over medium-low heat. Cook for 2-3 min.  

Step 7

Add your shredded Daring Plant Chicken to the pot and stir until mixed through.  

Step 8

Remove from heat and serve with garnishes and tortilla chips.
