    PanNan's Note:

    I had a jar of tomatillo salsa in the pantry and decided to create an easy week night dish full of flavor. This sure fit the bill. DH asked me to write it down before I forgot what I did so I could duplicate it again. I'm watching fat, so I didn't add cheese or sour cream to my portion, but it was still delicious. Cleanup is a breeze -just throw the foil away!

      This was a nice change of pace for chicken. I really like tomatillo salsa and love to use it in different ways. This gave me the opportunity to do so. The chicken wasn't as tender as I would have hoped for, but the flavor was tasty. Thanks for sharing your recipe! Made and reviewed for ZWT 5 for the Genies of Gourmet.
