This is a terrific Tex-Mex casserole and a great supper on a frosty evening. Serve with brown rice.
Combine the tomatoes, green chiles, onion and chicken broth in a medium saucepan, and bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce heat, cover and simmer 25 minutes until vegetables are tender. Add 1/2 teaspoon salt and chopped jalapeño.
Meanwhile, put the chicken breasts in a medium saucepan and cover with lightly salted water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer for 10 minutes. Drain water from pan and keep chicken breasts warm.
In yet another pan over medium heat, blend the flour, oil, chile powder and salt, stirring until smooth. Gradually add the 2 cups of water, stirring constantly. Bring mixture to a boil, stirring occasionally, then lower heat and simmer for 5 minutes.
Pour sauce into a 9-inch square baking dish (Pyrex preferred). Place the chicken breasts on top. Pour the tomato and green chile mixture over the chicken. Sprinkle with the grated cheese. Bake for 20 minutes until chicken is tender. Makes 4 to 6 servings.
