I made this up because I love salsa verde and I thought it would be good with chicken. Hope you like it!

Good but not much flavor. The chicken was moist. Made a few minor changes. Baked at 400. Subbed boneless skinless chicken breasts. Added the salsa verde at the start and after 45 min stirred in the sour cream. Baked another 20 min, uncovered added cheese and baked another 5 minutes. Served with corn and tomato and additional sour cream. The whole meal together was good.
