Chicken with Tomatillo Salsa

Servings: 1
Prep Time:
5 min
Cook Time:
30 min


  • 8 tomatillos
  • 1/2 yellow onion
  • 1 poblano pepper
  • 1 jalapeno (can reduce to half)
  • 1/2 serrano pepper (optional)
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 3-4 sprigs cilantro
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 4 oz chicken breast
  • 2 oz extra lean ground turkey
  • 1/2 T duck fat
  • 1/4 -1/3 c onion slices
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • cabbage leaves (optional)


(1) Cover 8 tomatillos, 1/2 yellow onion, 1 poblano pepper, 1 jalapeno (less if you like more mild flavors), and 1/2 serrano pepper (omit if you like more mild flavors) with water.  Boil for 10 min.  Once the vegetables are soft, drain the water, add 2 cloves garlic, 3-4 sprigs cilantro, and a 1/4 tsp salt and puree (easiest with a hand blender).


(2) Slice the chicken breast into small cubes, and form small chunks out of the turkey.  Sprinkle liberally with salt and pepper.


(3) Saute the meat in 1/2 T duck fat.  When it is browned on one side, stir and add 1/4-1/3 c sliced onions (depending on your flavor preference).


(4) Add 1/3 c of the salsa (you will have plenty leftover), 1 tsp cumin, and 2 cloves garlic.  Cook for an additional 5-10 minutes.


(5) Serve as is, or wrapped in cabbage leaves, sprinkled with a bit of Himalayan pink rock salt.
