  1. Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Place the chicken strips in the skillet, and sprinkle with the red wine vinegar. Season with 1/2 the pepper, 1/2 the oregano, 1/2 the garlic powder, and 1/2 the nutmeg. Cook 5 minutes, turn, and season with remaining pepper, oregano, garlic powder, and nutmeg.
  2. Place the cilantro, onion, and apples over the chicken in the skillet. Cover, and continue cooking 5 minutes, until chicken juices run clear and apples are slightly tender.
  3. Place the tomatillo salsa in a bowl, and cook in the microwave 2 minutes on High, or until heated through. Serve over the cooked chicken and apples.

Wow! I give this 5 stars. (1) Flavor, (2) time, (3) ease, (4) simple ingredients, (5) presentaion. I'm new to cooking, so I've been looking for quick and easy recipes using stuff I have in the pantry. This was it! The only thing I did not have was the cilantro, so I left it out. I will definitely make this again. Next time I think I will substitute the garlic powder for minced garlic. My husband thought there were too many apples. There were a lot. It wouldn't hurt to cut this part by half. They made it a little sweet, but not too much. I just ate the apples he didn't want because I thought they were great. Also, I did not peel the apple and it was fine. Thanks for a great recipe. One I would serve to dinner guests.

I really wanted to like this recipe. I followed other reviewer's comments about adding more seasonings and serving it as a fajita. Either way, I just didn't like it. :( Oh, well!

super easy and great tasting. I used frozen chicken tenders for even more ease and speed. I served this over rice and my husband and I loved it!

this recipe is delicious. it doesn't look great but the taste is wonderful. i had no nutmeg so i added someone other spices such as savory and thyme which added nice flavor.

I was putting it together thinking...this is not going to taste good. While cooking and stirring, I was thinking, this is just wrong - these ingredients are not going to taste right together - and adding my spicy leftover salsa verde is not going to help one bit. But, I followed through, served on brown rice with mexican shredded cheese and a little sour cream on top and it was good!! Ha ha, surprise, surprise! Glad I made it :)

Very good! One thing I did differently was to mix the oil, vinegar and spices together then pour over the chicken and let it marinate for a few hours to let the flavor soak in. The cilantro, apple, onion combo gave it a great flavor. I didn't know what tomatillo salsa was so used fresh salsa from the produce section of the grocery store.

Tasted okay, but I don't think I'm really a fan.
