Expert Tips

The tomatillo sauce can be served with fish or flank steak as well.

Directions

  • 1 Boil tomatillos with enough water to cover for 7 minutes or until they slightly darken.
  • 2 Drain and set aside.
  • 3 Heat oil in a large sauté pan over medium heat. Add chicken and season with oregano, garlic salt, and pepper. Cook for 10 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through and lightly browned.
  • 4 Place tomatillos, cilantro, jalapeño, and garlic in a blender container. Pulse 3 to 4 times until consistency is chunky. Salt to taste.
  • 5 Place sauce in a medium-size saucepan over medium heat. Heat for 5 minutes. Serve chicken with sauce on top and a side of rice.

A tangy tomatillo sauce is so versatile; it can easily be served with chips, over your favorite meat, seafood or added to a melting pot of queso fundido. This time, I decided to serve it over tender pieces of chicken breast for a flavorful Mexican mid-week meal. Make plenty because it keeps well and will taste much better on leftovers once all the salsa flavors have combined. Enjoy!
