This is actually a really quick meal and it is made in one pot. I love one-pot meals! I used half of a rotisserie chicken for the cooked chicken, and this was ready to go in the oven in less than 10 minutes. I used Fonterea Grill Tomatillo Salsa for the salsa verde. It was really good. It didn't have big chunks in it and wasn't spicy. I've already made this again because we loved it so much. Add this to your menu ASAP!
