    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    TEQUILA CREAM SAUCE

    • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided
    • 2 tablespoons chopped garlic
    • 2 tablespoons jalapeno peppers, chopped (optional)
    • 1/2 cup chicken stock
    • 1/4 cup tequila
    • 3 tablespoons lime juice

    CHICKEN

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Heat 2 tablespoons of butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add garlic and jalapeno, and saute until soft.
    2. 2
      Pour in chicken stock, tequila, and lime juice. Bring to a boil, then lower the heat and simmer until the mixture is reduced to a paste, about 15 minutes. Stir occasionally to make sure it is not sticking.
    3. 3
      While the sauce is cooking, place the chicken in a bowl, and pour soy sauce over it.
    4. 4
      Melt remaining butter in a skillet, and saute the onion, red bell pepper and green bell pepper until soft. Remove vegetables, and set aside.
    5. 5
      Add oil to the skillet, and cook the chicken over medium-high heat until lightly browned.
    6. 6
      Pour in the sauce and heavy cream, and add the peppers. Bring to a boil, and simmer until chicken is cooked through, about 5 minutes.
    7. 7
      Remove from heat, and stir in Romano cheese and cilantro. Taste and adjust seasonings if desired. Serve immediately.
    8. 8
      Brenda's Note: "the most time consuming part of this recipe is making the paste for the sauce (it gives an unique flavor and is worth the effort). The paste can be made ahead of time and stored in the fridge or freezer. Bring to room temperature before adding to the sauce. Serve with your favorite noodles (1b of dry) or with mashed potatoes (5 medium.)".
