      The only chipotle peppers I could find were canned in adobe sauce. These worked just great. Also, I'm not a fan of chicken thighs so I just used breasts which of course was delicious. A very spicy, excellent dish that was a snap to make.

      Very easy, very tasty. Used what I had onhand. So replaced the heavy cream and milk with half & half, and used pepper jack for the cheese. Worked just fine for me. I also added 5 minutes to the chicken baking time before adding sauce, and another additional 5 minutes after adding the sauce and cheese.... looked like it needed it. As always, a recipe is a suggestion and you modify a bit here and there as your experience and tastebuds allow..... and this recipe is a GREAT suggestion!

      Obviously, I'm in the minority here, but this was just ok for us. It did have bold flavors, but something just seemed off....probably just my lack of mad cooking skills. :-)
