    Mami J's Note:

    This is an easy, creamy and spicy dish, that can be served in about 45 minutes or less, depending on the chicken pieces you choose. Make it as hot as you like. Serve accompanied with white Mexican rice and a side of steamed vegetables. Adjust baking time if using boneless chicken breast so that they don't dry out.

      I LOVED the sauce. I took a tiny spoonful (as a taste,while cooking) and I found it hard to resist tasting more. It was addictive! I used 8 drumsticks and 4 T. butter - every other amt. I kept the same. I opted for 2 chipotles and it was the perfect amt. of spice for me. My family perferred the chicken on its own, without sauce. They don't know what they were missing! ~I tried this recipe because loof had it in her best of 2009 cookbook at the Top Favorites of 2009 Cookbook Tag Game.~

      This was fantastic! The milk helped to mellow the spiciness of the chipotles. We also liked to pour the extra sauce over the Spicy Chili Chipotle Rice I made to go with it. I will definitely make this again. Gracias! Made for the Epicurean Queens ZWT5: Family Picks.

      We really enjoyed this chicken dish! DH grilled the chicken on the BBQ rather than roasting it in the oven and then we topped it with the delicious sauce. The sauce definitely had a spicy zing but was not overpowering. We used 3 chipotle chiles and boneless, skinless chicken breasts. Thanks for posting! Made for ZWT5.
