Taco night just got a whole lot better with this simple and delicious recipe that's easy enough for any weeknight meal

We all love tacos, but we can grow tired of the typical ground beef version. This recipe uses juicy chicken thighs as the base filling, and they’re topped with homemade charred salsa verde to spice things up. This recipe is perfect for a hassle-free meal that won't break the bank.
