“I found this dish in Cooking Light Magazine. They suggested you serve it with chipotle rice. Combine 1 cup long-grain rice and 2 cups fat-free less-sodium chicken broth in a medium saucepan; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 15 minutes or until liquid is absorbed. Stir in 1/4 cup thinly sliced green onions and 1/2 teaspoon minced chipotle chile, canned in adobo sauce.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Prepare grill to medium-high heat.
  2. Combine the first four ingredients (olive oil, cumin, pepper, garlic) in a large zip-top plastic bag. Add chicken to the bag; seal and let stand for 15 minutes.
  3. Discard husks and stems from the tomatillos. Combine tomatillos and broth in a small saucepan over medium-high heat' cover and cook 8 minutes. Drain and cool slightly. Combine tomatillos, cilantro, green onions, lime juice, sugar, salt, garlic clove and jalapeno pepper in a food processor; process until smooth.
  4. Remove chicken from the bag; discard marinade. Sprinkle chicken evenly with 1/4 teaspoon of salt. Place on a grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill 6 minutes on each side or until chicken is done. Serve with tomatillo sauce.
