Chicken Tacos

Chicken tacos don't really need a recipe - put some chicken, salsa and cheese in a tortilla right? But I saw this Bobby Flay recipe that sounded really good. I tried it. It was really good. Here's the simplified version.

Chicken Tomatillo Tacos
4 tomatillos
olive oil
1/2 small red onion
2 garlic cloves, peeled
1/2 c. chopped cilantro
juice of 1 lime
1 T. honey
1 c. shredded chicken (1 chicken breast?)
6 tortillas
1/2 c. crumbled feta cheese (this is supposed to be queso fresco but feta totally works)

Saute the tomatillos in olive oil until browned on most sides. Place in food processor with onion, garlic, cilantro, lime juice, and honey. Pulse until mostly blended... to your liking. I like to see some red onion chunks... but no big chunks of raw garlic. :)

Place chicken in tortillas, top with tomatillo salsa and sprinkle with feta.

This made 6 smallish tacos/2 servings if you're super hungry like we were.
