Reviews for Grilled Tomatillo Chicken for Two
"This is delicious, and since there is only 2 of us no waste. Since we are on Weight Watchers Program we loved the tomatillo salsa not only for the flavors but because it is very waist friendly. Will be making this again!"
"Wonderful. I used chicken thighs instead of breasts because we like them better. I had 5 boneless, skinless thighs and put 1/2 slice of provolone on each. This is really good and I'll definitely make it again."
