Ingredients

2 tablespoons butter
2 poblano peppers
seeded, sliced into 1/4inch strips, or green bell pepers
*
1 medium onions
sliced 1/4 inch thick
4 chicken breast halves, boneless, skinless
salt and black pepper
freshly ground
*
½ cup sour cream
½ cup milk
½ pound monterey jack cheese
grated

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350℉ (180℃). Melt the butter in a large heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Meanwhile, rinse and dry the chicken breasts with paper toweling. Season both sides of each chicken breast with salt and pepper.

First prepare and cook the chicken breasts.
Cook until well browned,

When the skillet is hot add the chicken breasts and cook until well browned, about 5 minutes per side. Ideally you will develop a fond in the pan (brown bits) that will help flavor the sauce. Remove the chicken breasts and arrange in a baking dish in a single layer.

Add the onion to the skillet

Add the onion to the skillet and cook for a few minutes. Season with a bit of salt. Add the poblano peppers and cook for about 10 minutes until both the onions and poblano are softened.

Add the poblano peppers
Remove from heat and transfer to a blender

Remove from heat and transfer to a blender along with the sour cream and milk. You may wish to use less milk for a thicker sauce. Taste and season with salt and pepper as needed. Pour the sauce over the chicken and sprinkle the cheese on top.

We absolutely love this recipe. I have prepared it exactly as written, and also made just the sauce and served it over oven-roasted chicken breasts. This is definitely a keeper.

Made this dish the other day....it was great however I added some red pepper flakes to the sauce before blending to spice it up. I will say this, it's a keeper.

An outstanding balance of flavors. Lots of sauce to go around, easy to scale to make 1 or 2 servings (reduce the oven time to 10 or 15 minutes). I added much less milk than the recipe calls for (one or two tablespoons) and the consistency of the sauce was perfect for my tastes.
