Herbed Chicken Breasts with Tomatillo Salsa and Queso Fresco

    Hate to be the wet blanket, but no one in my family thought this was anything special. The only change I made was using jalapeno instead of serranto pepper as that is what I had. Fam would have preferred that the cheese was melted as it kept falling off the chicken. Eatable but very ordinary. Will not be making again.

    This fixes up quick and is a hit with all members of my family, including an extra picky husband (he doesn't use the salsa or cheese). I've altered it a bit by adding spices and oven frying the chicken.

    This is lovely, easy, weeknight recipe. I skip the breading and season the chicken directly with salt, pepper, cayenne and cumin then saute or grill. If you need an easy sub for the salsa, Frontera makes a good tomatillo salsa that makes this dish a snap! I like to serve mine with a jicama salad made with orange segments

    This is a fabulous recipe and one of the family favorites! Instead of making the green sauce, I buy tomatillo sauce. It cuts down on time and tastes great! I serve it with rice and a salad. It's healthy and delicious.
