1/4 cup prechopped tricolor bell pepper mix
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
2 (6-ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
Cooking spray


Prep: 5 Minutes
Cook: 18 Minutes

1. Prepare grill.

2. Grate rind from lime and squeeze juice to measure 1/8 teaspoon and 1 tablespoon, respectively. Place rind and juice in a medium bowl. Cut tomatillos in half.

3. Heat a medium nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add tomatillo halves, skin side down; cook 4 minutes or until lightly charred on edges. Turn tomatillos over, and move to one side of pan; add bell pepper on the other side. Cook 2 minutes or until bell pepper is lightly charred, stirring occasionally (do not stir tomatillos). Remove pan from heat; remove tomatillos from pan, and coarsely chop. Add tomatillo, bell pepper, and cilantro to lime juice mixture; toss well.

4. Place chicken on a grill rack coated with cooking spray. Grill 6 minutes on each side or until done. Spoon tomatillo salsa over chicken.
