Favorite Salsa Verde Chicken

This 30-Minute One-Pan Salsa Verde Chicken is perfect for a busy weeknight.  It’s healthy, tasty, and super easy.

This Salsa Verde Chicken needs only a few basic ingredients and a casserole dish.

I always keep a jar of my favorite salsa verde from Sprouts in my pantry.  Trader Joe’s has a yummy version too, but I prefer the Sprouts version as it has a little more kick (from Jalapenos).

You can use either bone-in chicken thighs (my favorite) or boneless skinless chicken thighs works too.

Perfect over rice, tortillas, or chips.

Curry-Spiced Chicken Thighs with Sugar Snap Peas and Fingerling Potatoes

Curry-Spiced Chicken

I always love it when the Blue Apron box arrives at my doorstep!  I tear open the box like a kid at Christmas to see what I’ll find.  This occasion was no different.  Here was what I made last night.  Thank you Blue Apron!  This is a great new addition to my recipe collection.

Curry-Spiced Chicken Thighs with Sugar Snap Peas & Fingerling Potatoes

Makes: 2-3 Servings

Cooking Time: 35 to 45 minutes

In addition to Madras curry powder (a blend of chiles popular in Southern India), a flavorful yogurt sauce with cucumber and lemon juice tops this dish. Similar to raita (a traditional, versatile Indian yogurt condiment), the sauce’s cool richness beautifully contrasts the spiced chicken.
