I think this was one of the first "real" dinners I made. My husband states that I could open a restaurant and only serve this...so at least one compliment! Alter the heat with more or less jalepenos and Tabasco.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Lightly oil a baking pan.
  3. Place the green pepper, a quarter of the jalepeno, and the garlic in a pan and toss gently to coat with oil and push the vegetables to the side of the pan.
  4. Add chicken and turn the chicken to coat with oil.
  5. Place the vegetables on the chicken and bake 30 minutes.
  6. While chicken is cooking, melt the butter in a sauce pan.
  7. Add the flour and cook 2-3 minutes until lightly browned, then add the milk and cook over medium heat until thickened.
  8. Add the cheese and turn off the heat.
  9. Add the rest of the jalepeno and the Tabasco and stir well.
  10. Let cool until chicken has finished baking.
  11. Drain fat off the chicken, and pour the cheese sauce over the chicken and vegetables, and bake 30 more minutes.
