Step 1 Preheat the oven to 350. Season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper.

Step 2 Heat an oven proof pan over medium high heat. Add the vegetable oil. Once it is nice and hot, sear the chicken breasts on both sides and then place in the oven to cook for 20-25 minutes. You want the chicken to reach an internal temperature of 165 degrees but cooking time might vary slightly depending on the thickness of the breast.

Step 3 Using a small sauce pan, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the onions, jalapenos, and garlic and cook for about 3 minutes. Then whisk in the flour to create a roux.
