      Superb! Had company over to try out this recipe and we all loved it. Since it was very hot, we grilled the chicken and added it to the recipe at the salsa verde and chicken broth step (#4). I delayed adding the cilantro until the last minute -- wanted to keep the cilantro a bright green color. Also used 16 oz of salsa since it used up the jar -- which just made more of this wonderful sauce. Next time I'll double the tomatoes and add pine nuts for variety.

      I made this for dinner last night. Followed the recipe, but I used green tomatillo sauce. It was good, but seemed to be missing a little "zip." Maybe the salsa would work better or an addition of some diced chilies.

      Delicious!! Made recipe as printed. Next time going to plan ahead and serve with a side of sour cream and guacamole. Also may try as another cook stated and grill the chicken first. Thanks for posting recipe.
