 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    2      tablespoons   butter
    2                    poblano chilies -- seeded and sliced
                         into 1/4-inch strips
    1      medium        onion -- sliced 1/4-inch
                         thick
    4                    skinless boneless chicken breast halves
                         salt and freshly ground pepper
      1/2  cup           sour cream
      1/2  cup           milk
      1/2  pound         Monterey Jack cheese -- grated
 
 1. Preheat the oven to 350°.  Melt 1 tablespoon of the butter in a large skillet.
Add the poblanos and onion and cook over moderate heat, stirring, until softened,
about 10 minutes.
 
 2. Meanwhile, melt the remaining 1 tablespoon butter in a large heavy skillet.
Season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper and add them to the skillet. Cook
over moderately high heat until browned, about 5 minutes per side. Arrange the
chicken in a baking dish large enough to hold them in a single layer.
 
 3. Transfer the cooked poblano mixture to a blender with the sour cream and milk;
puree until smooth. Season with salt and pepper. Pour the sauce over the chicken
and sprinkle the cheese on top. Bake for about 25 minutes, until the sauce is
bubbling and the chicken is cooked through.
