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.
This was so good. It just hit the spot. Used a med. salsa verde, I have some homemade in the freezer so may try that next time. Served with rice and quaesadillas.
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.
This recipe reminds me a lot of my homemade chicken verde - but without the 3 hour prep/cook time!. I followed the recipe for the most part, except I didn't cook the chicken through before adding the rest of the ingredients (to which I also added a bit of chopped green chile for heat) then allowed it to simmer for longer than the suggested time. In the end, the sauce was a bit thicker than what is intended, but we enjoyed it very much. Next time, I think I will add some shredded cheddar to the top of each breast before serving and add a side of some warm tortillas. All in all, this is a very good dish.
Absolutely delicious! A genuinely fantastic recipe, I will add to my cookbook and make again and again. I stumbled across this gem searching for a recipe to use the cilantro from my garden. That was less than two weeks ago, and I've made it twice since then. The first time I didn't have onions, so I added a little extra garlic. The second time I followed the instructions exactly, and also added a small pepper for extra spice. Both times it was delectable! Try it! It will become a quick favorite! Thanks for sharing Denise!!
My husband loved this! It had to grow on me. The sauce is very bold! Mine certainly didn't look like the picture. I didn't have any tomatoes. Went along with garlic butter rice and zucchini.
Just made this for the 2nd time. I really liked the kick the first time, but this time it was a little too spicy. Maybe I cut back on the salsa the first time. I used chicken tenders instead of breasts, and I think the suggestion of chopped onion would be better than the sliced.
Easy to make and lots of flavor.....we served over rice and really enjoyed this dish
Thanks for a great recipe! This chicken was so delicious, and I loved it all the more because it was easy and quick to make. My only changes were to finely dice the onion instead of slice it (to give the sauce a more salsa-like texture), and to use a red restaurant-style salsa instead of salsa verde. Oh, and I also seasoned the raw chicken with creole seasoning salt before I put it in the pan. Turned out so good, seriously. My husband loved it, especially paired with yooper's (Black Bean and Couscous Salad), so much that he said it was one of the best meals I've ever made for him!
