Green Chile Chicken

I LOVE the green chile chicken from Bajio so I experimented and made my own version that is super simple, and pretty good! You can put it on a salad, in a burrito, enchiladas, quesadillas or even just plain on rice. Kind of a sweet chicken with a mexican twist

3-4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite size pieces (my latest trick is to just tear apart a $5 cooked rotisserie chicken so I don't have to cook it!  So great)
1-2 tablespoons butter
2 small cans chopped green chilis
1/2 cup salsa or enchilada sauce (your choice...I use green salsa)
1 onion, sliced
3-4 tbls tbls brown sugar
salt and pepper, to taste
cumin, to taste

1. Cook chicken and onions in butter until chicken is cooked thoroughly

2. Add the remaining ingredients, let simmer for a while and taste. Add more sauce, spices or sugar as needed.
