Saute onion in pan after chicken(set aside chicken and drippings) for about 4 min on med-high. Add carrot for about 4 min then add peppers for only a couple min more, so that they dont get very cooked (we just want some of the moisture to be released here)

Add salt and pepper to taste.

Set aside the veggies and chicken together.

Pour broth and salsa verde in same large pan .bring to a steady simmer for a few minutes so that the flavors can marry.

Combine the veggies/chicken with broth and bring to a simmer and turn off immedialty.
