chicken in salsa verde

I don’t know about you but I love salsa verde. I like to think of it as salsa’s edgier relative. This is a great way to prepare boneless skinless chicken breast. I always have to wrack my brain in finding new ways to prepare it. If you like cheese ( why wouldn’t you) and salsa verde then you
will enjoy this recipe as much as I do.
