…from the California Kitchen
How you doin’? The sun is shining—the sun is always shining in Southern California and I am craving bright fresh flavors, like cilantro and lime. That could be a craving for margaritas, but actually, I was really thinking of making chicken with those kinds of flavors. This easy Margarita Green Chicken is fast and very flavorful.
In this one-skillet recipe I use boneless thighs, because they are flavorful, tender and juicy. Just combine cooked chicken with green sauce and lots of fresh chopped cilantro. Serve over steamed white rice with steamed tortillas or fried tortilla chips, if desired.

Salt and pepper (to taste)
2 cups cooked, cubed, sliced or shredded chicken meat
1/2 cup chicken broth
2 tablespoons white tequila

ChefSecret: I prefer to use sous vide chicken thighs or leftover roasted chicken in this dish.
