If your chicken breasts are large, butterfly them to cut them in half and/or pound them thinner.
Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper.
Heat oil in a large skillet. Brown chicken on both sides.
Add the onions, broth, jalapenos, cumin and garlic. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer until chicken is cooked through (thermometer reads 165°F), about 5-7 minutes. Remove chicken and keep warm.
Stir cream cheese and sour cream into jalapeno mixture. Stir in tomatoes and heat through. Do not boil or the sauce will break. Add the chicken back to the pan to rewarm as needed.
