    I looked everywhere for pablano chilies. I Googled pablano chilies and found that grocery stores label them as pasillo chilies. I purchased a couple and plan to prepare this recipe tonight.

    Just made this tonight for 2 - seemed like just enough sauce for 2 breasts. You might consider doubling for 4 portions. I also used chopped fresh cilantro in place of scallions in the rice to reinforce the Mexican theme. Overall very delicate flavor, not at all spicy, but entirely delicious!

    Unfortunately, could not find a poblano pepper anywhere in my neighborhood :( I was so excited about making this dish, and decieded to replace the poblano with a green bell pepper, and mixed in a bit of a hot green one 4 some heat... And it was AMAZING!!! Cant wait till I can make it with the poblano ;)
