You'll only need to purchase one package of prechopped green, yellow, and red bell pepper to use in the salsa and the corn.

  • Yield: 2 servings (serving size: 1 chicken breast half and about 1/3 cup salsa)
  • Cook time: 18 Minutes
  • Prep time: 5 Minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 lime
  • 4 tomatillos, husks and stems removed
  • 1/4 cup prechopped tricolor bell pepper mix
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 (6-ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
  • Cooking spray

Preparation

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.
