It was delicious! The only changes I made was I added a bit of chili powder to the breadcrumbs and baked it in a foil lined baking tray @ 350 for about 30 mins instead of frying it.
This idea was good. I had to work with a thinner portion of chicken, so I had to roll the "stuffing" up like a log almost and then roll in the seasoned bread crumbs, and I cooked it in the oven. Was good, but needs something on the outside of the chicken, or more seasoning in the bread crumbs I made. But the idea was great, and will just have to do something different with my bread crumbs and season the chicken for next time.
My fiance gives this 5+ stars! I cut the recipe down to 1 serving and since my fiance is a jalapeno and spice lover, I used one whole jalapeno, which I left the seeds in. The only other change I made was to only fry this for a few minutes, just until the the breadcrumbs browned a bit. Then I baked at 350 for 20 minutes on a wire rack. This will be a "make again". Thanks! :)
Very good recipe but could use a hair more flavor. I baked mine (no pan frying at all) at 350 for 30 minutes, after dipping in milk then rolling in the bread crumbs. Next time I will double the jalapenos, and also add some garlic salt and/or onion powder to the cheese mixture. I will also dust the outside with garlic salt, to get a little more flavor out of this dish, but the recipe is a great starting point and probably great for those with less heat-tolerance.
This was awesome! The chicken was a nice balance with the jalapeno. It tasted just like Jalapeno Poppers!
Okay, I have yet to try a recipe from this site I haven't enjoyed making and eating! This recipe was no different! IT WAS OUTSTANDING! We are partial to spicier foods, so I added extra doses of Jalapeno peppers, plus added paprika, black pepper and crushed red pepper to the bread crumb coating. I also opted to bake it instead of the pan fry. It was cheesy and spicy spilling from the moistest chicken! My kids had seconds and my husband thought this would be a hit at his fall football gathering! I made it again for my parents who don't eat the peppers, substituting mushrooms and asparagus tips with the cheeses, and garlic salt and mustard seed in the coating. Great alternative. A recipe I will for sure be making again!!!
This was so good! I added bacon into the cream cheese mixture and I also baked it. The spice of the jalapeno and the smoky bacon made a delicious combo. Also used low fat cream cheese and homegrown jalapenos. Will definitely make this again. My boyfriend couldn't get enough.
Excellent and simple, if you don't mind frying - and I can not imagine that a baked version would turn out tasting as good! Even Mr. "I hate yardbird" loved it. Used flash-frozen chicken filets, thawed them, and basically butterflied them in cutting a pocket because they were pretty skinny filets. Filled the "pocket" with a seeded, intact half of a jalapeno instead of mincing the pepper, and couple TBS of the cheese mix. Held them together with toothpicks, and used a pan that can be soaked clean! The chix was preseasoned (roasted garlic); the cream cheese was a combo of what I had - whipped cr ch and onion/chive, with shredded cheddar/monterey jack. I did pre-cook the peppers in the microwave after cutting/seeding - one minute zap.
