It’s nice when you can make something as easy as this and everyone loves it – even if you aren’t a spice lover, I bet your family will devour this! We could probably eat this almost once a week because it is always flavorful, easy, and overall pretty healthy!
Jalapeno Popper Chicken
2 jalapenos, deseeded and diced
4 ounces Neufchatel cheese
4 ounces grated cheddar cheese
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon pepper
1 tablespoon scallions, sliced
2 chicken breasts, sliced in two thin cutlets
1/2 cup whole wheat panko breadcrumbs
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. In a small bowl, combine jalapenos, Neufchatel cheese, cheddar, salt, pepper, and scallions. Divide the mixture evenly and spread over each chicken breast. Roll up the chicken breasts and use toothpicks to secure. Put the breasts into a casserole dish. Juice the lime over the top of the breasts and then top evenly with breadcrumbs. Bake for 30-45 minutes, until chicken is cooked through. Serve immediately.
Until the next time my oven is on…
