PLACE tomatillos, chiles, onion, lettuce, cilantro, parsley, garlic and pepper in blender; cover. Blend until smooth.

HEAT oil in a large skillet over medium-low heat. Carefully add tomatillo mixture; stir. Cook for 5 minutes.

PLACE pepitas, evaporated milk, 1 cup reserved broth from cooking chicken and bouillon in blender; cover. Blend until smooth.

ADD pepita mixture to skillet; cook, stirring frequently, for 5 minutes.

PLACE chicken on a serving plate; cover with about ¾ cup sauce. Sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds and serve.

Cook's Tip: To roast the sesame seeds, place them in a pan. Cook, shaking pan until golden brown. Shake constantly to avoid burning.
