  • Summary

    This weeknight chicken dinner takes advantage of canned green chiles, a flavorful and time-saving pantry staple. The green chiles have already been roasted, peeled and chopped for ease; simply combine them with spices and broth for a quick sauce with nice mild heat and smoky notes. Chicken thighs are an affordable cut that’s juicy, tender and rich with flavor, but chicken breast could also be used here for leaner (but just as tasty) tacos. Leftovers can be turned into a zesty pasta salad or used as a hearty omelet or frittata filling.

    Ingredients

    • 1/4 cup safflower or canola oil
    • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
    • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
    • 1 1/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken thighs, chopped into 1/2-inch pieces
    • Kosher salt and black pepper
    • 1/2 cup finely chopped yellow onion (from 1/2 medium onion)
    • 1/2 cup finely chopped green bell pepper (from 1/2 bell pepper)
    • 3 garlic cloves, minced
    • 2 (4-ounce) cans chopped green chiles, drained
    • 1 cup low-sodium chicken broth 
    • 8 (6-inch) corn tortillas, warmed or toasted
    • Shredded cabbage, store-bought pico de gallo or salsa, sliced avocado, sour cream, and cilantro leaves and tender stems, for serving
    • Lime wedges, for serving
