This green chile chicken stew is one of our quickest dinners to prepare. We love making this on weeknights, since it requires minimal prep and can cook—in just one pot—while you do other things. The flavors of the green chiles are complemented by onion, garlic, lime, and fresh cilantro. You can use that leftover chicken from a previous dinner (if you made our Garlic and Lemon-Roasted Chicken, for example), which brings the cost way down, or you can use chicken thighs, which are usually less expensive than breasts. The chicken cooks slowly in the broth which makes it fall-apart tender. Optional spinach adds some extra greens, and top the stew off with diced avocado, tortillas or tortilla chips, and some grated cheese (optional) for a filling and delectable meal.
