Disjoint chicken, cover with cold water. Bring to boil, cover and simmer 1 hour. Let cool in the broth to handle easily. Skin, bone and shred. Skim fat off broth and freeze. Sauté onion and garlic in oil until soft, Add tomatillos, vinegar, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, lower heat to medium and cook 5 minutes to reduce liquid. Add chicken and cilantro, continue to cook uncovered approximately 10 minutes. Reduce heat to low to keep filling warm. Do not allow to cook too dry. Fill prepared tortillas and garnish with a dab of sour cream.
