Let's Make It
Melt butter in large skillet on medium-high heat. Add chicken; cook 5 min. on each side or until golden brown on both sides. Season with pepper.
Add onions and garlic; cook and stir 5 min. or until crisp-tender. Cover; cook on medium heat 10 to 12 min. or until chicken is done (165°F). Remove chicken from skillet, reserving drippings in skillet; cover chicken to keep warm. Reduce heat to low.
Stir sour cream and chipotle peppers into drippings in skillet; cook 5 min. or until heated through, stirring occasionally. Add parsley; mix well. Spoon over chicken.
Serve with a mixed green salad for added color and texture.
Reducing the heat to low before adding the sour cream helps to prevent the sour cream from curdling.
Add 1/2 cup small stuffed green olives to sauce along with the chipotle peppers. Or, for added heat increase to 2 Tbsp. chopped chipotle peppers.
