Directions

  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  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).

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...

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...

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 th...

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 homeg...

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 ...

This was awesome! The chicken was a nice balance with the jalapeno. It tasted just like Jalapeno Poppers!

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,...

Delicious! Even the hubby gave it five stars, which says a lot. I did cheat and put the filling on top of the cutlets, because I wad running late making dinner. I also added bacon bits into th...
