Summer is synonymous with grilling, and we’ve been doing quite a bit of it the past several weeks. Hamburgers are my go-to summer weekend dinner, but this grilled chicken recently made an appearance on our menu and was a huge hit. It’s quick enough that you can fire the grill up on a weekday and have this dinner done in practically no time.
The sauce is the real star of this dish. Made of grilled/broiled tomatillos and peppers, it’s got a smoky flavor with just a hint of spice. The avocado and Greek yogurt cool it off enough to consider it kid-friendly. We only made enough chicken breasts to feed the three of us (which meant a small one for Clara), so we had leftover sauce which I enjoyed with tortilla chips the next day. I also think this would be fab over scrambled eggs or on top of steak. The sauce was so delicious that I ate a spoonful of it while I was putting away the leftovers. No shame. If you’re looking for a way to spice up chicken, this sauce is definitely the way to go.
