Preparation

Step 1

To make dressing, whisk together lime zest and juice, garlic, oil, salt, and black pepper in large bowl.

Add all remaining ingredients except chicken and cilantro to dressing; toss until mixed well. Divide vegetable mixture evenly among 6 plates or large shallow bowls. Top each serving with 1/2 cup chicken; sprinkle with cilantro.

TIP:
The easiest way to husk a tomatillo is to hold it under cool running water while peeling off the husk. Be sure to rub the outside of the tomatillo until any residual stickiness is washed away.
