Tomatillo Chicken With Black Beans

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by MechanicalJen

Blackened veggies and salsas make me think summer! Found in Pampered Chef's "Cooking for Two or More". What a lovely recipe, which sounds much more complicated than it actually is! The salsa makes the dish.

Delicious! Also used chili powder as that is what I had on hand. Definitely will make this a regular!
