CREAMY STUFFED CHIPOTLE CHICKEN
The sauce is amazing. It is simple to make and very flavorful. You can adjust the spice level easily. Use two chipotle chilies if you like it spicy. You can either add more sour cream or use only one chipotle pepper to control the heat.
Use a cast-iron skillet or other oven-safe saute pan. In case you don’t have a saute pan that is safe to go in the oven, you’ll need to transfer the chicken and sauce to an oven-safe pan before putting it in the oven.
WHAT YOU’LL NEED FOR THIS RECIPE
- Chipotle chilies. These are smoky, spicy peppers that are the base for many Mexican sauces.
- Cream cheese. Block cream cheese. I don’t recommend light or fat-free.
- Tomatoes. Vine-ripe if you can find them.
- Sour cream. You can also use Greek yogurt.
- Salt and pepper.
- Garlic. Fresh or jarred, not garlic powder.
- Chicken. boneless skinless chicken breasts or thighs
CREAMY STUFFED CHIPOTLE CHICKEN METHOD
- Boil and skin the tomatoes.
- Add the tomatoes, water you boiled them in, along with the chili, garlic, onion, and sour cream to a blender.
- Mix until the sauce is completely smooth.
- If needed, pound the chicken to a uniform thickness.
- Spread about one tablespoon cream cheese on one side of the chicken and roll up.
- In a hot (oven safe) pan, sear the seam so that it stays rolled up.
- Cover the chicken with the sauce and bake in the oven.
I like to serve extra sauce spooned over rice. As well, you can serve it with pasta or quinoa.

- Heat your cast iron skillet and add a bit of oil to it. Once it is hot, sauté the chicken until it is sealed on the outside.

- You can use two of the chipotle chilies if you like it spicy. If you don’t like it too hot, you can either add more sour cream to the sauce or use only one.
- If you don’t have a cast-iron skillet you can make this in an oven-safe saute pan.
