Chicken Simmered in Poblano Cream

Chicken Simmered in Poblano Cream


"Roasted poblano chiles can range from mild to extra spicy in flavor but are always delicious. Succulent pan-browned chicken, the deep richness of mushrooms and the sweet flavors of caramelized carrot and onion create the perfect balance when paired with hot, roasted poblano chiles."

  1. Heat the oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Add the carrot and cook for 2 minutes or until tender-crisp, stirring occasionally. Add the onion and cook for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the chicken and cook for 8 minutes or until well browned on both sides. Remove the chicken and vegetables from the skillet.
  2. Stir the soup and water in the skillet and heat to a boil. Return the chicken to the skillet. Reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook for 5 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through. Season with the salt and black pepper.
  3. To serve, spoon the soup mixture over the chicken. Top with the vegetables, chile and red pepper, if desired. Serve with the rice.


  • Time-Saving: You can substitute 1 drained jarred roasted red pepper for the fresh red pepper and skip the roasting step.
  • Recipe Note: Most dried or fresh chiles can irritate hands or eyes, so consider wearing rubber gloves while handling chiles.
  • Ingredient Note: To roast the poblano chile and red pepper, place onto a baking sheet. Heat the broiler. Broil until the skin is blackened, turning over every 3 minutes. Remove the chile and pepper to a paper bag. Close the bag and wrap in a clean kitchen towel. Let stand for 10 minutes. Remove the skin and seeds and slice.

Poblano cream added nothing to the recipe but the time and trouble to roast and prepare the pepper!

I have made this recipe twice and my family loves it. I made it exactly as the recipe was written so I could give an honest opinion. It is worth the effort.

My kids loved's not as intense as I thought it would be. Easy dish to make and eat. Followed the directions precisely. Served it with brown rice.

I am not a soup sauce fan, but Campbell's sells a Cream of Poblano soup in many parts of the country, and it is very good. King Ranch Chicken casserole is fabulous when you use it for the can ...

It seems that putting the peppers into the simmering sauce would help a lot. And if you really want flavor, get a can of chipotle peppers in adobe sauce, dice one up really small or whiz it in t...
