    Remove husks from tomatilllos; rinse tomatilllos well. Cut around stem area of each to remove core; cut tomatillos into quarters. In large food processor, place garlic and onion, tomatillos, jalapeno chili, cilantro, sugar and 1/2 teaspoon of the salt. Cover; process about 15 seconds or until almost smooth.
  • 3
    Pour 1 cup tomatillo mixture into small serving bowl; cover and refrigerate to serve as salsa. To make marinade, add remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt and the cumin to remaining mixture in food processor. Cover; process 10 seconds.
  • 4
    Place chicken breasts in glass baking dish. Spoon marinade over chicken; spread marinade over chicken to coat evenly. Cover with plastic wrap; refrigerate at least 4 hours but no longer than 8 hours, turning chicken at least once while marinating.
  • 5
    Heat gas or charcoal grill. Carefully brush additional oil on grill rack. Place chicken on grill over medium heat; discard marinade. Cover grill; cook 12 to 15 minutes, turning once, until juice of chicken is clear when center of thickest part is cut (170ºF). Serve each chicken breast with about 2 tablespoons salsa.

Expert Tips

  • Did You Know? : Tomatillos are Mexican green tomatoes in husks. Their flavour has a hint of lemon, apple and herbs. Tomatillos are popular in Mexican and Southwest cooking and used in a variety of dishes.
  • Substitution: In place of fresh tomatillos, you can use 3 cans (12 oz/341 mL each) whole tomatillos; drain the liquid. Decrease the salt to 1/2 teaspoon, using 1/4 teaspoon each in the processed mixture and the marinade.
