“This dish makes a satisfying meal out of a favorite appetizer.” - by LBR8
Original recipe yields 4 servings
- Stir together the cream cheese, Cheddar cheese, and jalapenos in a small bowl.
- Cut a pocket horizontally through the thickest side of each chicken breast, and fill with 1/4 of the cheese mixture. Secure with toothpicks.
- 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...." See more"
"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 ..." See morewas 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 jala..." See morepenos, 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."
