Chicken Verde Pasta

Chicken Verde Pasta

Yield 6



  1. In a large skillet (I used a 12 inch cast iron.), combine chicken, broth, tomatillos, chilies, garlic, onion powder, and cilantro.
  2. Cook over medium heat until chicken is cooked through (about 20 minutes).
  3. Cut chicken into bite sized pieces. I did this right in the skillet.
  4. Stir in pasta and olive oil and cook until tender. Stir frequently to keep the pasta from sticking to bottom of the pan. The olive oil helps with this a bit, but you still need to stir it. Mine took about 15 minutes, but the time may be different if you use a different type of pasta.
  5. Turn heat off and stir in about 3 cups of the cheese and yogurt. Leave the pan on the burner and stir until all of the cheese melts and everything is well combined.
  6. Stir in salt to taste.
  7. Sprinkle remaining cup of cheese on top and place in the oven until it melts.
  8. Garnish with additional cilantro if desired.
