This zesty dish combines bites of tender chicken with creamy white beans—cooked with our bright, citrusy tomatillo-poblano sauce, which is based on classic Mexican salsa verde. For delightfully crispy contrast, we’re topping it all with crunchy tortilla strips baked with a smoky blend of brown sugar, two kinds of paprika, and more.

Place an oven rack in the center of the oven, then preheat to 450°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut off and discard the stems of the sweet peppers; remove the cores.
