This recipe cauaght my eye because we grow serrano peppers, and it sounds wonderful. I am going to make it with skinless, boneless chicken breasts because we like our chicken that way, Another time I may try it with chicken thighs as an appetizer.
Will see how it works out. Thanks for sharing. Ciao, Babe
