  1. I like to cook the chicken breasts in a crock pot as they are tender and easy to shred.
  2. Roast the poblanos either under the broiler on the grill until at least half of the skin is charred black.
  3. Place the chiles in a zip-lock bag and let steam for about 20 minutes.
  4. Prepare enchilada sauce.
  5. Carefully remove the outer skin from the chiles.
  6. Cut a slit in the chiles and carefully remove the seeds. Don't be overly concerned about the peppers splitting.
  7. Mix the chicken with 1/2 cup of the enchilada sauce, salt, pepper, onion powder and one half of the cheese.
  8. Stuff the chiles.
  9. Spray a casserole dish with vegetable spray and place the peppers in the dish.
  10. Cover with remaining sauce and cheese.
  11. Bake in a 375°F oven until the peppers are heated through and the cheese is melted (about 20 minutes).
