      An easy supper that is just full of flavor. My local Mexican market makes a delicious salsa verde, which is what I used in this dish. Served with rice and some sauteed zucchini.

      WOW! This was a fabulous dish. Definately going into my Favorites of 2013. I did add some minced garlic and onion to the pan to saute a little after browning the chicken then added the salsa and followed the rest of the instructions. Topped with sour cream, scallions and cilantro and served with a small green salad. Thank you for posting. Made for Spring PAC 2013.

      This is soooo good! The chicken was cooked perfectly and the flavorful sauce cooked down to perfection in the time specified. Serving topped with sour cream was a perfect completion of the dish (I don't care for raw onion so didn't garnish with those). Thanks for sharing a keeper!
