Ingredients

    8 Small poblano chiles (or 4 large)
    1 large onion, finely chopped
    3 heaping tsp minced garlic
    2 TBS Olive Oil (EVOO)
    3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (1 1/2 #) diced into 1/2" cubes
    1 tsp salt
    2 to 2-1/2 Roma tomatoes, diced
    1/2 cup sliced mushrooms

Add the diced chicken and salt. Cook until chicken is almost done, then add tomato and mushrooms. Continue to cook until chicken is done (no longer pink).

Spray a two quart casserole dish with Olive Oil. Spray the outside of the chilies with olive oil. Pack the chicken mixture ito the chilies and push cheese (chunks) into the mixture. If using shredded cheese, place a small amount on top of each chile. Cover dish, place in preheated oven and bake for 30 minutes. During last 5 to 10 minutes, remove cover and bake until cheese is melted. Serve on top of a bed of 1/2 cup of rice.

  • Great recipe! I use shrimp in the stuffing instead of chicken; just add the shrimp last when cooking the filling. - 4/3/11
