2 1/2 pounds
boneless skinless chicken thighs
2 tablespoons
finely chopped fresh garlic
1 (16-ounce) jar

1/2 cup
fresh cilantro, coarsely chopped

Lime wedges, if desired

Directions

  1. Heat butter and oil in 12-inch skillet until sizzling. Add chicken and garlic; cook over medium-high heat 9-11 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink.

Recipe Tips

- Serve over hot cooked rice or wrap in large warm tortillas.

- Green salsa, made with roasted green chiles and tomatillos, is generally spicier than tomato salsas. A mild green salsa will provide a medium level of heat.
