Very good and pretty easy. I used a small can of Ortega chiles (b/c that's what I had on hand). I used a blend of Monterey, pepper Jack, and habanero Jack (b/c that's what TJ's had). It was easy to throw together. I omitted the tobasco for the sake of my 4-year old, and didn't bread one of the breasts because my husband is "that" guy. Everyone liked it. I will definitely make it again. Very flavorful. Served it with steamed broccoli. Just make sure to keep the pan handle covered when it comes out of the oven. My poor hand is not happy.
A good combination of flavors. Good for when you're in the mood for a "heavy" meal due to the breading and filling. Holds up well to making somewhat in advance.
This is a great, easy recipe. I've even created my own variations with surprisingly amazing results.
