For first step One Pan Sour Cream Chicken melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Stir in flour; cook for 1 minute. Whisk in chicken broth; cook and stir until sauce is smooth and thickened, 2 to 3 minutes.

Stir green chiles, olives, salt, oregano, and chipotle chili powder into the sauce. Add chicken breasts and bring to a simmer. Reduce heat to low, cover, and cook until chicken is no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear about 15 minutes.
