Grilled Chicken with Tomatillo Sauce
Ingredients
1 lb. fresh tomatillos washed and husked
2 Anaheim chile peppers
2 green onions sliced
2 cloves garlic minced
1 to 2 jalapeño peppers seeded and diced
1/2 cup fresh cilantro leaves lightly packed
2 tsp. fresh lime juice

Oil
Garlic salt
Directions
Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 25 minutes

To make sauce, place tomatillos and Anaheim
peppers on a grill over medium heat; cook for 5 minutes, turning frequently, until tomatillos are lightly charred. Remove tomatillos from grill and place in a bowl; set aside. Continue to cook peppers until lightly charred; remove from grill and place in a small brown bag. Let stand for 5 minutes, then remove skin, stems and seeds. Place all sauce ingredients in a food processor or blender and process until finely chopped. Place mixture in a small saucepan and simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and keep warm.

Brush chicken with oil and sprinkle lightly with garlic salt. Grill over medium heat for 10 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 165°F, turning occasionally. Remove from grill and serve with warm sauce.

Makes 6 servings.
