Oaxaca Style Chicken

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!
