the tomatillos are tender. In a blender, place the cooked
onion, tomatillos, and any remaining water. Add the garlic,
peppers, cilantro, salt, and the remaining lime juice.
Blend until all the ingredients are smooth. Place the sauce
in a bowl and refrigerate.
Place the chicken breasts on a hot grill and cook until

Spoon a tablespoon of low fat sour cream over each
chicken breast. Pour the sauce over the sour cream.
