Verde Chicken and Calabacitas

with Creme and Spinach Garlic Rice

Select Qty: Dinner for


Simple yet so delicious, I love the bright flavor of the traditional salsa verde, which takes only minutes to make and tastes good on everything not just chicken. Begin with the salsa of tomatillos, fresh chiles and herbs. Add the salsa to a sauté of diced fresh chicken, onion, roasted green chiles and fresh summer squash.  The finishing dash of thick, luscious Mexican crema on top really sets off the mild tartness of the sauce. On the side, a simple white rice redolent with garlic and fresh spinach adds another layer of great flavor and further balances the salsa verde.
