2 cloves garlic
2 small sprigs marjoram
1 1/2 cups chicken stock
2 Tbsp oil
Salt to taste
2 whole chicken breasts, about 12 oz each, cooked and shredded
1 onion sliced
1 cup crumbled feta cheese
1/2 cup thick cream
3 sprigs of finely chopped cilantro

how to make it:

1. Toast the chiles, remove the seeds and membranes, and soak in warm water for 20 minutes. Roast the tomatoes and peel them. Roast onion quarter and garlic.

2. Drain the chiles and transfer to a blender. Add the tomatoes, onion, garlic, marjoram, and chicken stock, then purée until smooth.
