Green Chili, Cream Cheese Chicken

Jeanne Benavidez


I cannot remember where I found this recipe but it is an easy, one-pot meal. I made this a lot when my family was all at home. I still make it when I need something to take for "bring-a-dish" dinners. I have tweaked it to suit my family's taste. Its a fairly flexible recipe.
