This moment! We were wowed by the flavors, the brightness and the straightforward simplicity. What’s special is that there’s no cumin or chili powders — just fresh lime and garlic, stirred into the chicken which creates a vibrant coating on the seared chicken that dances in your mouth. Pow!

Author's Notes

For TortillaLand® Fresh Ready to Cook Tortillas:

1. Preheat a non-stick pan to medium heat (440ºF). No butter or oil required.

2. Place tortilla in a pan and cook for 30 seconds until slightly golden and tortilla begins to puff.

3. Turn tortillas over, and cook for an additional 30 seconds. Cook thoroughly before eating. Caution: tortilla will be hot. Enjoy!

Keep refrigerated until ready to use. Do not mix cooked and uncooked tortillas. Try cooking the tortillas on the grill or BBQ - grill tortillas until they have grill marks on both sides.

Step 1
Peel and mince the Garlic (2 cloves) . Slice the Onion (1) . De-stem and deseed the Jalapeño Pepper (1) .
Step 2
Husk, rinse, and quarter the Tomatillos (1 lb) ). Zest and juice the Lime (1) , reserving for use later.
Step 3
Place Poblano Peppers (3) directly over the gas of a gas stove or grill, and cook until skin is black and blistered all over. Place hot peppers in a brown paper bag and fold the top over tightly to steam peppers. Set aside.
Step 4
Heat oven to 200 degrees F (95 degrees C). Place a piece of foil over a baking sheet and spray with vegetable spray.
Step 5
Add Olive Oil (1 Tbsp) to a medium skillet. Saute sliced onion over medium high heat until crisp tender. Transfer to prepared baking sheet.
Step 6
Remove poblano peppers from paper bag and rub the blackened skins from the flesh. Remove the stem and seeds and slice into long strips about 1/4" wide. Add poblanos to onions and place in oven to keep warm.
Step 7
For salsa, add the tomatillo, jalapeno pepper, peeled Garlic (1 clove) , and Fresh Cilantro (1/2 cup) to the bowl of a mini prep-food processor. Pulse 6-8 times until chunky salsa forms. Season with Salt (to taste) and Ground Black Pepper (to taste) .
Step 8
Slice the Tyson® Chicken Breasts (1 lb) crosswise into 1/4 inch slices, and heat Olive Oil (2 Tbsp) in a skillet over medium high heat.
Step 9
Add sliced chicken breast and let cook for 2 minutes, without stirring, until one side of the chicken releases from the pan. Flip chicken and brown 1-2 minutes.
Step 10
Add garlic, lime juice, and zest. Stir to coat chicken in garlic and lime. Add Salt (to taste) and Ground Black Pepper (to taste) if desired.
Step 11
Warm TortillaLand® Flour Tortillas (to taste) in the oven by wrapping them in aluminum foil.
