      Great chicken. I used a fresh roasted anaheim chili but otherwise as written. Served with Mexican Restaurant Salad, and Jalapeños Rellenos (Stuffed Jalapenos).

      My DH always complains when I serve chicken because "it's SO boring." (Not that my cooking is boring, but that he'd rather eat bacon for every meal! LOL!) Regardless of his opinions about chicken, we both LOVED this dish! The chicken had so much flavor and interest. The crust was crispy and flavorful and the inside was creamy with the perfect amount of spice. The other thing I love is that this recipe is really very simple, but looks so impressive! I made as directed and served with rice and a salad. Thanks for the great recipe!!!

      Concept is very good. We baked on rack on cookie sheet and it was very crispy. Would try cream cheese and jalepanos in the middle next time as my family likes it spicy! Makes a lot. Would cut in half next time!!!
