  • Heat heavy extra-large skillet or Dutch oven on medium heat. Add chicken, in batches; cook 3 min. on each side or until browned on both sides. Remove from skillet; cover to keep warm.
  • Add cactus to skillet; cook and stir 3 min. or until crisp-tender. Stir in salsa; bring to boil. Add chicken; simmer on medium-low heat 30 min. or until done (165ºF). Remove from heat; stir in bacon and cilantro.
  • Serve topped with sour cream.

Special Equipment Needed


Substitute your favorite store-bought or homemade salsa for the green salsa.


If fresh cactus paddles are not available, use a drained 30-oz. jar of cactus paddle strips instead, adding the cactus for the last 5 min. of the chicken cooking time.
