How to Make a Poblano Chicken Recipe
I had completely forgotten about this Poblano Chicken recipe until the other day! Since it came to my mind, I haven’t quit thinking about it. I saw it on some cooking show over 20 years ago and decided I would try it out on the family – everyone loved it! This dish is so creamy and full of flavor. I can almost guarantee that you will love it too. The peppers are very mild, and all of the flavors blend really well. Read below to see how to make this delicious Poblano Chicken recipe.
Poblano Chicken Ingredients
Boneless Chicken Breasts or Strips
1 Chopped Onion
2 Diced Poblano Peppers
12 oz. Chicken Broth
1 Cup or so of Heavy Cream
Juice of 1 Lime
Cilantro, Cut or Chopped (Desired Amount)
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Salt & Pepper
In a skillet, brown the seasoned chicken pieces in olive oil for 3-4 minutes on each side. Remove the chicken from the skillet and set aside. Add the onions and poblano peppers to the skillet and saute them until tender. Once they are tender, add the chicken broth, heavy cream, lime juice, and cilantro. Stir well and add the chicken back into the mixture. Simmer for about 15-20 minutes.
Poblano Chicken Options
You can serve the dish just like this or remove the chicken pieces and blend the cream mixture in a blender or food processor to make a sauce. I have used both methods and love them both. However, we prefer it directly from the skillet so that you get the larger pieces of the peppers with the chicken. This is obviously the easier method as well.
You can serve this dish over rice (not low-carb) or cauliflower rice if you are watching your carb intake. Either one works great.
If you make extra sauce, you can actually save it, add more meat and any other ingredients you like (rice, potatoes, etc.) and make it into a soup. That is delicious also.
If you have the option of getting fresh chicken, I highly recommend it! Our daughter and her family raise chickens, so I know exactly what I am getting – healthy chickens with no additives! You can see their information here if you are interested.
