KID NOTE: The kids liked the chicken and tolerated their mandatory taste of the salsa. They really enjoyed the potatoes, and I let them skip the salad and eat slices of grapefruit which I called ‘pink oranges’.
VEGETARIAN TIP: We’re going to transform this dish into heuvos rancheros over potato hash. Skip the chicken but prepare the salsa. Add chopped bell peppers and onions to the potatoes and roast. Soft fry 4 eggs. Plate potato hash top with an egg and salsa.
GLUTEN MODIFICATIONS: Gluten free as written.

I would grill mixed vegetables and mushrooms. Maybe even add some firm tofu.
I loved this meal! I couldn’t find tomatillos so I used tomatoes and shallot in the salsa. It turned out great! The salad was the perfect accompaniment and the potatoes were to die for! My kids didn’t like the salsa, but loved the salad without the segments of grapefruit. 🙂 Clean plates all around!
Fantastic – everyone loved this meal. They fought over the leftovers for lunch the next day. Assembling the ingredients was a bit time consuming, but the dishes came together quickly, so overall it was fast to prepare. I didnt have the fresh tomatillos, so used canned. I will definitely make again using fresh.
The chicken with the sauce was very good. We didn’t try the salad.
Thanks for the idea with the tomatoes! I did that and tasted great. Question for @sstabenow…is there a step missing from the roasted garlic potatoes? I wasn’t sure what to do with the garlic at the end? Is it just in there for ambience?? Delicious!!
