The secret to this amazing recipe is the tomatillo avocado salsa. Not to brag, but I gave the recipe to a friend from church, and now her family insists that she make the salsa all the time to just have readily available. (OK, i bragged. That was clearly bragging. I’m a bragger.)

  • 4 large boneless chicken breast or thighs
  • 1/2 pound tomatillos-husked and quartered

  • 3 tablespoons cilantro leaves
  • 1 Hass avocado, cut into 1/2-inch dice
