My family has loved this recipe for years. They love to shred the chicken, roll it up in corn tortillas (can use flour if you prefer), and dip in the wonderful sauce. MMM good!

Step-by-Step

  1. Brown chicken lightly in half the butter in skillet and season with salt and pepper. Lay in single layer in greased shallow baking dish. Splash with about 1/4 cup chicken broth. Cover tightly and bake in preheated (350 degree) oven for 20 minutes.
  2. While chicken bakes, heat onion gently in remaining butter in same pan until soft and golden. Rinse, dry and seed chillies. Dice and add to pan with garlic and flour.
