Chicken with Tomatillos and Braised Fruit

Cinco de Mayo is one of my favorite holidays (as if I need an excuse to make Mexican food and have a margarita).  I’m celebrating all week long, with Bon Appetit’s help, so this was tonight’s dinner:

Chicken with Tomatillo Sauce and Braised Fruit  I made these changes:

  • boneless skinless chicken thighs and breasts instead of a whole chicken, to lower the fat & calories
  • used a large jar (24 oz) of Salsa Verde instead of using tomatillos, to save on chopping and add flavor
  • added 1 cup chicken broth
  • added 2 chopped Chayote squash, for extra veggies
  • added some unsweetened dried mango
  • served over rice with a dollop of yogurt on top
