Chicken Stuffed Poblano Peppers

Jenny Powers


I love battered and fried poblano peppers, but avoid because they are not so healthy. I also don't like to fry. I came up with this easy receipe, it is so good. My friends raved about the peppers Hope you try it. I served it with my baracho beans and spanish rice.
