    Bert's Kitchen Witch's Note:

    I love salsa verde, so this is one of the ways that I like to prepare chicken. This dish serves up great with Spanish rice, and a green salad.

      2009 fantastic chicken dish...i added a 10oz can of ortega diced green chilis to give the sauce some chunk and i used 4 cloves of garlic...i combined the salsa, broth, garlic, green chilies, way more cilantro (almost a half a cup) jalepeno & the cumin and didnt bother to take the chicken out of the pan, just poured the broth mixture around the pan. also, i didnt have sour cream but had some crema fresca left from fajita night so a dolup of that went on each piece...loved it! 03/25/10 i make this all the time & everyone LOVES it. i've even started chopping the chicken up before dusting with flour and cooking it in small pieces to use in burritos & tostadas.

      Really quite delicious, isn't it? I ended up making extra sauce (or, rather, the same amount of sauce called for with less chicken) and served the whole thing over rice. To soak up the extra sauces, of course. I should admit though. I'm a sucker for anything cilantro.

      This was great! I could only find medium green salsa and so left out the jalpeno and used fat free sour cream to cut down the fat/calories. I shredded the chicken and served in warm tortillas with lettuce and cheese. Loved by all! Thanks for posting
