Jalapeno Popper Chicken

Recipe By: LBR8
“This dish makes a satisfying meal out of a favorite appetizer.”

Ingredients

  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 2 jalapeno peppers, seeded and minced
  • 4 (6 ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
  • 1 cup seasoned bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil

Directions

  1. Stir together the cream cheese, Cheddar cheese, and jalapenos in a small bowl.
  2. Cut a pocket horizontally through the thickest side of each chicken breast, and fill with 1/4 of the cheese mixture. Secure with toothpicks.
  3. Roll the chicken breasts in bread crumbs to coat. Heat the oil in a skillet over medium-high heat, and cook chicken breasts until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about 8 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).
