This Jalapeno Popper Chicken is SO GOOD - all you need is light cream cheese, cheddar and jalapeno peppers! *found on Pinterest*
Prep Time: 10 mins
Cook Time: 30 mins
Servings: 4 servings
4 chicken breasts
1 tbsp olive oil
1/2 tsp each paprika & salt
1/2 (8oz) block light cream cheese
1 cup grated cheddar cheese
4 jalapenos, finely diced make sure to remove the seeds!
Roasted baby potatoes
Preheat oven to 375 F. Slice into chicken widthwise making cuts deep enough to fill with cheese mixture (see video for details). Drizzle olive oil overtop and rub with paprika and salt.
In a large bowl, microwave cream cheese on high for 45 seconds (make sure to cover dish otherwise it will make a mess of your microwave!) Remove from microwave then stir in cheddar cheese and jalapenos.
Stuff each little slit in the chicken breast with jalapeno-cheese mixture. Bake in oven for 30-32 minutes until chicken is fully cooked. Serve and enjoy!
