Recipe

Back before I really starting cooking, my roommate and I went through at least one package a week of Trader Joe's Chicken Chili Verde.  Not only was it easy and relatively healthy, we could heat it up at work in the microwave in about 4 minutes.  For first year teachers, this was the pressure test for a passable lunch.  Fast forward to the present and recently I found myself craving this but instead of running to Trader Joe's, I wanted to make my own version.  In my mind, chicken in chili verde should be chunkier than a traditional chicken in salsa verde.  The vegetables should  be soft and tender but should maintain some of their integrity and it should be spicy.  In fact, in my own version, I like to use 2 unseeded chopped jalapenos or serranos to really pack in the heat.
