This was quite delicious. I used a whole jalapeno pepper, and it was really good. I left mine in the oven for 7 minutes, and the sour cream topping never did get bubbly though it was heated through quite nicely. So I just removed it from the oven, and it was fine. In fact, it tasted wonderful. Thanks for sharing your recipe, lazyme.
My friend and I had this for dinner with baked potatoes and whole wheat rolls and we really enjoyed it. I only used 2 chicken breast halves and used all the mixture for the top and it was excellent. I opted to use the green chilies for a milder flavor, as I have a woss for a neighbor who doesn't like anything too hot. I may try it another time with jalapenos to turn up the heat a little, but it was delicious with the chilies too! Thank you for sharing your recipe with us Lazyme! Made for The 8th Annual Photo Swap
