You’ll only need to purchase one package of prechopped green, yellow, and red bell pepper to use in the salsa and the corn.

  • Yield: 2 Servings
  • Preparation Time: 5 Minutes
  • Cooking Time: 18 Minutes


  • 1 lime
  • 4 tomatillos, husks and stems removed
  • 1⁄4 cup prechopped tricolor bell pepper
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 (6-ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
  • Cooking spray
How to Make It
  1. Prepare grill.
  2. Grate rind from lime and squeeze juice to measure 1⁄8 teaspoon and 1 tablespoon, respectively. Place rind and juice in a medium bowl. Cut tomatillos in half.
  3. Heat a medium nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add tomatillo halves, skin side down; cook 4 minutes or until lightly charred on edges. Turn tomatillos over, and move to one side of pan; add bell pepper on the other side. Cook 2 minutes or until bell pepper is lightly charred, stirring occasionally (do not stir tomatillos). Remove pan from heat; remove tomatillos from pan, and coarsely chop. Add tomatillo, bell pepper, and cilantro to lime juice mixture; toss well.
  4. Place chicken on a grill rack coated with cooking spray. Grill 6 minutes on each side or until done. Spoon tomatillo salsa over chicken.
