Chicken Breasts with Poblano Sauce
Roasted poblano peppers add delicious depth of flavor to this incredibly creamy sauce. In addition to topping chicken, this easy and versatile sauce is terrific with other foods. Toss it with pasta or spoon over vegetables or seafood—the possibilities are endless!
The poblano is a mild chile pepper popularly used in southwestern cooking. When dried, it is called a chile ancho, which means "wide chile". If you prefer more kick, use ripened red poblanos as they are significantly hotter and more flavorful than the less ripe, green poblano.

2 large poblano peppers, roasted, peeled and deveined

1 teaspoon MAGGI Granulated Chicken Flavor Bouillon
1 tablespoon butter or margarine
2 teaspoons all-purpose flour
