Green Posole with Chicken

Sara Moulton's Time Saving Dinners

Sara Moulton, host of "Sara's Secrets" on the Food Network and executive chef for Gourmet, has a new cookbook out called "Sara's Secrets for Weeknight Meals." She demonstrated on "Good Morning America" how to prepare recipes from her latest collection.

Posole is a hearty soup from the Jalisco region of Mexico that is traditionally made with pork and hominy. Hominy is dried corn kernels from which the hulls and germs have been removed. (In its ground form, hominy is called grits.) Dried hominy takes several hours to cook, so I have opted for the canned version in the interest of time. I have also developed a lighter version with shredded chicken and tomatillo salsa (hence green posole). This dish is ridiculously easy to make and quite satisfying with all the additional garnishes.
