      Charmie!! I knew when I saw this on your menu I had to try it, but the question is how did it take me so long??!! This is amazing! Sooo delicious and flavorful, and very easy to prepare. I reduced to one serving which worked great for two of us here and served with chips as suggested. I used neufchatel cheese, low fat cheddar and reduced sodium chicken broth to great success. Thanks for sharing! ZWT8

      The sauce is absolutely delicious though I did have some minor problems (probably my own errors though and not the fault of the recipe). I had two huge chicken breasts (the equivalent of three "normal" size) so adjusted ingredients to 2 slices bacon, 2 jalapenos, 2 garlic, 3/4 cup broth, 3 oz cream cheese (Neufchatel), 3/4 cup cheddar (extra sharp). I left out the cilantro. I had to cook the chicken an extra 5-10 minutes to get it cooked through, even after pounding it even. Later, when I added the jalapenos to the pan, it was like having a pan of "Mexican jumping beans" LOL They had been frozen (from a friend's garden) so were fairly wet - when the water got hot, they flew out of the pan! They also almost smoked me out of the kitchen - the fumes from the hot chiles made me cough terribly. Anyway, even with the problems I had, the end result was super delish! Thanks for sharing!
