Let me just put it out there, this isn’t the best of Valentine’s Day recipes. It is known to create stinky breath, it has been accused of tasting like soap from many a cilantro hater, it’s really bright green (definitely not red and not really sexy), and it’s best eaten stuffed in tortillas thus creating the very real possibility of chicken or salsa or both on your fancy outfit. I think my subconscious may be fighting back against the whole idea of the day and forcing me to share bright green chicken. However for everything this recipe isn’t, it is one thing delicious. That is if you love cilantro. The chicken hangs out in a ton of cilantro and garlic overnight and then gets cooked up in a skillet or on the grill. Easy, peasy.
