It is always fun to find a new and unique chicken recipe that you can easily make on a busy schedule. Chicken is a really easy meat to cook up but sometimes you end up cooking either the same thing or something similar with it. That is why getting a new recipe that can switch things up is great.

Add in the poblanos, onion, and corn to create a southwestern flavored cream sauce that you will be making time and time again.

Roasting and Preparing the Poblano Peppers

Heat your oven to 425 degrees.

Take 3 poblano peppers and lightly coat with olive oil.

Place on a baking sheet. I prefer to use foil to line my baking sheets. It helps with clean-up so you do not have to scrape the pan clean every time.

Roast for 10-15 minutes or until the poblanos are browned on the outside. This makes it easy to peel the skin off.

Peel the skin off the poblano peppers and de-seed them. Now you can dice them up and set them aside.

Sautéing the Chicken and Vegetables

Slice 3 chicken breasts into thin strips. Season with ½ teaspoon garlic powder, ½ teaspoon salt, and ½ teaspoon pepper.

Place into a medium skillet and sauté in olive oil until the chicken is fully cooked.

Add into the skilled ½ diced onion, 1 cup whole kernel corn, and the diced poblano peppers. Sauté until the onion becomes translucent.
