Cut open one thawed packet of tomatillo sauce and pour over the chicken thighs. Return the other package to the fridge until it’s time to plate your meal.

3) When the chicken is done cooking, remove the tortillas from their packaging and wrap tightly in aluminum foil. Place tortillas in a Suvie pan and put in the Top Zone of Suvie. Leave the chicken thighs in the Bottom Zone. Confirm the 10 minute broil time and broil the chicken and tortillas.

4) After the broil, remove both pans from Suvie. Use two forks to shred the chicken into bite-size pieces. Divide the tortillas evenly between plates: 3 per person. Top each tortilla with chicken, the remaining packet of tomatillo sauce, and shredded mozzarella cheese.
