Let's Make It
Cook pasta as directed on package, omitting salt.
Meanwhile, mix 2 Tbsp. flour, red pepper and black pepper in bowl. Add chicken; toss to coat. Heat 1 Tbsp. oil in large skillet on medium heat. Add chicken; cook and stir 6 to 8 min. or until done. Remove from skillet.
Heat remaining oil in same skillet. Add green peppers, onions, jalapeno peppers and garlic; cook 3 min. or until vegetables are tender, stirring occasionally. Remove from skillet.
Stir remaining flour into drippings in skillet. Add broth, milk and Worcestershire sauce. Cook 2 min. or bubbly, stirring constantly. Stir in cheese until melted. Gradually stir 1 cup hot broth mixture into sour cream in small bowl; pour back into skillet. Stir in chicken and vegetables. Cook until heated through. (DO NOT BOIL.)
Drain pasta; place on platter. Top with chicken mixture.
If you like a spicier dish, chop jalapeno seeds and membranes along with the pepper. If you prefer less spice, remove the seeds and membranes before chopping.
How to Handle Fresh Chile Peppers
When handling fresh chile peppers, be sure to wear disposable rubber or clear plastic gloves to avoid irritating your skin. Never touch your eyes, nose or mouth when handling the peppers. If you've forgotten to wear the gloves and feel a burning sensation in your hands, apply a baking soda and water paste to the affected area. After rinsing the paste off, you should feel some relief.
Prepare using LEA & PERRINS Reduced Sodium Worcestershire Sauce.
