This was awesome! The chicken was a nice balance with the jalapeno. It tasted just like Jalapeno Poppers! This dish makes a satisfying meal out of a favorite appetizer,,

Jalapeno Popper Stuffed Chicken

Ingredients:
  • 1 8-ounce package cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 jalapeno peppers, seeded and minced
  • 4 strips of bacon, diced
  • 4 (6 ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
  • 1 cup seasoned bread crumbs (I used regular bread crumbs and seasoned them with salt, pepper, garlic powder and onion powder)
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil

Instructions:
  1. Cook the bacon in a skillet over medium heat until crispy. Drain on paper towels.
  2. Stir together the cream cheese, cheddar cheese, bacon, and jalapenos in a small bowl.
  3. Cut a pocket horizontally through the thickest side of each chicken breast, and fill with 1/4 of the cheese mixture. Secure with toothpicks.
  4. 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. If your chicken breasts are thick, like mine were, they can be finished in a 350-degree oven.
