Chicken Instructions:

Place the chicken breasts and bay leaf in a slow cooker; pour the beer over the meat. Cover and cook on low until well cooked and the chicken, about 1 hour.

Discard the bay leaf. Remove the chicken from the post, shred, and set aside.

Make Sauce:

Boil tomatillos, garlic, and peppers in water to cover for about 10 minutes.

With a slotted spoon transfer the tomatillos, garlic, and peppers to a blender. Add the onion and cilantro. Purée until smooth. Add salt to taste.

Heat olive oil in a large skillet. Pour in blended sauce carefully to avoid too much splatter and bring to a boil. Lower heat and simmer till thickened for about 6 to 8 minutes.

Assemble Enchiladas:

In a large skillet, heat oil until hot. Fry tortillas until softened. Drain on paper towels. Place lightly fried tortillas, one at a time, in the skillet of warm sauce, turning to coat.

Place a coated tortilla on a serving plate. On one half place some shredded chicken, diced onion, and shredded cheese and fold in half. Drizzle warm salsa verde over enchiladas and top with queso fresco.
