Sprinkle both sides of the chicken with salt, pepper, and a dash of cumin, garlic powder, and chili powder. You could spice things up a bit in one pan by adding more chili powder or tone it down in one pan by not adding it. This is the part where you control the spiciness.
In a bowl combine sour cream, cream cheese, green chilies, and the remaining seasonings. Slather all over the top of each chicken piece. Top with shredded cheese then bake for 1 hour at 350 degrees. Make one for the freezer by not wrapping and freezing before baking.Print
