Soak tomatillos in warm water for 15 minutes, then remove skin. Cut into quarters and add to bowl with sliced onion.
Cut jalapeños in half, remove seeds and wash.
Heat large skillet on medium with 1-2 tbsp olive or avocado oil until hot, but not smoking. Add tomatillos, onion and jalapeño to the skillet and sauté for 5-7 minutes.
Blend sauté in high-powered blender with cilantro, garlic and lime juice. Add tomatillo sauce to slow cooker along with organic chicken thighs + breasts (whatever your preference-- I did both) and cook for 4-6 hours. Shred once done.
