I’ve used them from time to time over the years, and they never disappoint.  The peppers pack a punch and the adobo sauce is incredibly full of flavor.

When I ran across this recipe, I picked up some peppers from Wal-Mart to Go and got busy…

This recipe comes from one of my favorite Weight Watchers cookbooks.  I added it to my Christmas list last year, and it’s just packed full of the best chicken recipes and this is one of them.
