Very tasty meal, a little time consuming but worth it, filled with flavour from the sauce with jalapeno and garlic. Thoroughly enjoyed that the chicken stayed moist and tender. I only had large tortillas on hand and just made 4; we will finish them up for lunch tomorrow. I prepared the recipe in the morning and poped it in the oven for 30 minutes for supper time. Served it with reheated red cabbage with apple casserole.
