  • 1 Combine 2 tablespoons olive oil, 1 tablespoon lime juice and 1 tablespoon Knorr® Chicken flavor Bouillon in large resealable plastic bag; add chicken and turn to coat. Close bag and marinate in refrigerator at least 30 minutes.
  • 2 Meanwhile process poblano peppers, crema and remaining 1 tablespoon Knorr® Chicken flavor Bouillon in blender until smooth. Heat remaining 1 tablespoon oil in large nonstick skillet over medium heat and cook garlic, stirring, until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Stir in poblano mixture and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until slightly thickened, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in remaining 3 tablespoons lime juice and cilantro.
