These are amazing! I am not sure where Catie got the recipe but it is awesome! The chicken can be made ahead of time in the crockpot to save time during the week. Could also used canned green chilis instead of fresh. When making the sauce, double or triple it and freeze it for later. Not sure they can be made ahead of tme and frozed because of the sour cream.
