Hatchet Chile Stuffed Chicken

Total Time
Prep 20 mins
Cook 30 mins

This is made with Hatch Chiles. I had a block of roasted chiles that had frozen together, and Red Apple Guy suggested chopping the block into smaller pieces... perhaps with a hatchet. Thus, hatchet chiles were born.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Saute the onion and garlic in olive oil until soft.
  2. Add salt, chiles, cumin and oregano to onions and garlic.
  3. On each chicken breast, place 1/4 of the chile mixture and 1/4 cup cheese. Roll up and secure with toothpicks. Roll the chicken breasts in the corn meal.
  4. Bake at 375 for 45-55 minutes. Towards the end of cooking --
  5. Combine remaining peppers, cheese, and sour cream. Cook over low heat until the cheese melts and the sauce is smooth.
  6. When chicken is done, remove from oven and let rest 5 minutes before serving. Serve with the chile cheese sauce poured over the breasts.

I didnt make my chicken exactly like this...used another recipe on this site but I did make the sauce. It was amazing thanks for sharing. Only change I made to the sauce was adding in sauteed mushrooms just because I love them..oh and I used half dynamite chiles and half mira sol. Thanks!
