I just discovered the salsa verde from Herdez - love it! It has only natural ingredients (tomatillos, onions, garlic, etc), and this dish came together so quickly!! I musta had dinner on the table in less than 30 minutes.
Chicken Salsa Verde
4-5 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1 ½” cubes
1 16oz. jar Herdez brand salsa verde
1 can stewed tomatoes
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
2 cups corn (I used frozen, from Costco)
Cut the chicken into cubes, and season with salt and pepper.
Heat saucepan on medium high heat, add oil, and brown chicken pieces.
When all pieces are browned, add the salsa verde, stewed tomatoes and black beans. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer for about 15-20 minutes, until the chicken is cooked.
Add the frozen corn, and heat thru. (I think the Costco frozen corn is key here - I love the crunch it gives.) Cilantro to garnish would be good too.
Cilantro Lime Rice
3 cups rice, cooked
1 small bunch cilantro, chopped
Juice of 1 lime
Drizzle of olive oil
1 teaspoon salt
Cook rice in rice cooker. After rice is done steaming, add the rest of the ingredients and toss.
