For the masa, bring the vegetable broth to a boil in a large soup pot and remove from heat.
Using a large 4-quart mixing bowl and electric mixer on medium speed, combine the corn masa, canola oil, baking powder, heated broth and 1 1/2 cups of the pureed salsa and mix until masa batter feels like mash potatoes.
For the filling, remove chicken from bone and shred. Combine shredded chicken with remaining salsa verde.
Soak corn husks in hot water until soft; 30-60 minutes.
Place 3 tablespoon of masa mixture on the smooth side of the softened corn husk and spread into a 4 x 4-inch square.
Place 2 heaping tablespoons of chicken filling in the center of each masa.
Roll the corn husk lengthwise from right to left. Fold the tamale tail end under and place on tray with folded end on bottom.
When all tamales are made, you can either place them into gallon zipper bags to freeze or you can steam them.
To steam tamales, use a vegetable steamer pot or electric steamer.
Fill steamer pot with 2 cups of water or amount recommended by manufacturer.
Place tamales, open end up, in steamer basket and arrange so that the steamer basket is full.
Cover tamales with leftover shucks to retain steam.
Bring water in steamer pot to a boil, cover and reduce heat to medium low.
Cook tamales for 60 minutes or until masa pulls away from shuck and is cooked.
