From the Test Kitchen

This dish is brimming with classic, zesty Mexican flavors thanks to the citrusy tomatillo-poblano sauce we’re using to marinate crisp cabbage, the blend of traditional spices (like ancho chile powder and smoked paprika) that coats our chicken, and the creamy guacamole-lime dressing drizzled on top.

tips & techniques
Prepare the ingredients:
1 Prepare the ingredients:

Wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut out and discard the core of the cabbage; medium dice the leaves. Roughly chop the peppers. Combine in a large bowl. Remove any husks and silks from the corn; cut the kernels off the cobs. Drain and rinse the beans. Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic. Halve the lime crosswise.

2 Marinate the cabbage:

To the bowl of prepared cabbage and peppers, add the tomatillo-poblano sauce; season with salt and pepper. Stir to coat. Set aside to marinate, stirring occasionally, at least 10 minutes. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. 

Cook the chicken:
3 Cook the chicken:

While the cabbage marinates, pat the chicken dry with paper towels; place in a bowl. Season with salt, pepper, and half the spice blend; toss to coat. In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 1 teaspoon of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned chicken in an even layer. Cook, without stirring, 3 to 4 minutes, or until lightly browned. Continue to cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 4 minutes, or until browned and cooked through. Leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan, transfer to a plate.

Cook the corn & beans:
4 Cook the corn & beans:

In the pan of reserved fond, heat 1 teaspoon of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the corn kernels in an even layer. Cook, without stirring, 2 to 3 minutes, or until lightly browned (be careful, as the corn may pop as it cooks). Add the drained beans and chopped garlic; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 4 minutes, or until slightly softened. Turn off the heat. Stir in the cotija and the juice of 1 lime half. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.
