DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Place chicken in an ovenproof baking dish, and place in preheated oven, and bake for 25 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, combine milk, canned chipotles, garlic, cumin, onion powder, and salt in a blender or food processor and puree until smooth.
  • Heat butter and flour in a large skillet and blend until smooth; add heavy cream and sour cream, whisking until smooth.
  • Stir in chipotle puree, and stir constantly until mixture comes to a boil and thickens; remove from heat.
  • After chicken has baked 25 minutes, remove from oven and drain any fat.
  • Pour chipotle cream over chicken and top with grated queso cheese.
  • Replace chicken in oven and bake for about 20 minutes more, or until cheese just starts to brown.
  • Remove from oven and serve with extra sauce spooned over chicken and garnished with minced chipotle chiles, if desired.
  • Goes good with steamed rice (and extra sauce on top).
