I have a delicious meal for everyone today. It's called Jalapeno Popper Chicken and it. is. TASTY!
2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 cup panko bread crumbs
2 tsp. taco seasoning (I made my own)
2 tsp. cup canola oil
2 medium Jalapeno peppers, seeded and minced
2 oz. package cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Garlic Salt and pepper to taste.
Cut pocket into side of each chicken breast and set aside.
Beat egg in bowl and set aside for coating.
Next, stir together bread crumbs, taco seasoning, and oil and set aside for second coating.
In small bowl, combine cream cheese, diced jalapenos, cheddar and spices.
Stuff Chicken with cream cheese mixture.
Dip chicken in egg, followed by bread crumb mixture until fully coated.
Bake at 375 degrees on greased, rimmed baking dish 25-30 minutes, or until internal temperature reads 165 degrees.
Super easy week-night meal that was a HUGE hit with the hubs. I paired it with a Southwestern Chopped Salad for a super yummy meal!
