Saucy Salsa Chicken

Saucy Salsa Chicken

This delicious Mexican-inspired recipe has dinner on the table in no time: quick-cooking chicken cutlets are pan seared then finished in an easy sauce made from salsa verde (green salsa made with tomatillos) and sour cream (or creme fraiche). A tasty weeknight meal doesn’t get much easier than this!

If you can’t find chicken cutlets, just use regular ol’ chicken breasts (they’ll take longer to cook, though). I used Trader Joe’s Salsa Verde but you can use your favorite brand…or regular tomato-based salsa if you prefer it.

Perfect sides for this are Arroz Verde (green rice) and a salad tossed with Southwestern Vinaigrette. Yum!
