Salsa Verde Chicken Bake

Bright green salsa verde over tender cooked chicken, topped with a shower of melty cheese. This easy weeknight chicken dinner makes a great prep-ahead meal, too!

I have a bit of an obsession with the flavor of bright, full, packs-a-punch-but-doesn’t-knock-you-out salsa verde. 

Salsa verde literally means “green sauce”. My favorite way to make it is by roasting halved tomatillos and blending them with fresh and vibrant cilantro, zesty lime juice, fresh garlic, and, occasionally, jalapeno or a habanero chile. Some days, you just crave that hit of heat in your salsa! 

This is one of the meals I’ve been sending out with my Prep Pack deliveries, and the feedback I’m getting on it is awesome.

People are loving how they can make parts or all of this dish ahead of time and then cook it the night they need it. 

They also love how quickly this simple chicken dinner comes together, and how good the leftovers are the next day!

Seriously- this is definitely a weeknight chicken dinner that tastes even better the next day. It’s the perfect dinner-turned-lunch dish. 

And the cherry on top is that it freezes like a rockstar, which means it’s the perfect addition to a meal prep batch sesh. 

Plus, topping off this dish with a shower of melty cheese makes it pretty tough to beat. 

It’s definitely one of my new favorites, and I can’t wait to share it with you! Click here for more details on grabbing your own Prep Pack (NYC only at this time)
