    Bert's Kitchen Witch's Note:

    This is something that I improvised one day out of what I had on hand. My DH liked it enough that it is something he now asks for regularly. NOTE* This is an edit to add that the breadcrumbs in this recipe can be replaced with the canned "French-fried" onions,and it is excellent that way!!

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 4 large boneless chicken breasts
    • 8 ounces soft cream cheese
    • 6 large fresh jalapenos
    • 1 (1 1/4 ounce) package Lipton Onion Soup Mix
    • 1 small onion
    • 1/2 cup dry breadcrumbs (*see note)
    • garlic powder (to taste)
    • cooking spray

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 350°F.
    2. 2
      Butterfly chicken breasts to as even a thickness as possible.
    3. 3
      Sprinkle both sides of chicken with garlic powder to your taste.
    4. 4
      Cut jalapeños in half and remove seeds and membranes, then dice.
    5. 5
      Dice onion.
    6. 6
      Combine cream cheese, diced onion, jalapeños and soup-mix together well.
    7. 7
      Spray baking pan with cooking spray.
    8. 8
      Place each chicken breast out flat on pan.
    9. 9
      Spread cream cheese mixture equally on each chicken breast.
    10. 10
      Top each breast equally with bread crumbs. *(I use unseasoned crumbs because the soup-mix is a bit salty).
    11. 11
      Place in oven for 40-45 minutes. Check halfway through cooking time and cover with foil if needed (ovens can vary, so you may or may not need to do so).

      We thought this was very good. I was afraid that the 6 peppers would've been too hot, so I used 4 pretty large peppers instead. I guess once you remove the seeds and membranes, the heat is gone and you are left with very flavorful peppers, so I shouldn't have been afraid! The cream cheese mixture was very flavorful and the chicken itself was moist and tender. I just felt that the breadcrumbs, all by themselves on top of the cream cheese mixture, made the dish a little too dry. I was worried about this and put about 1/4 cup of butter on top of the breadcrumbs and I think it helped. Thanks for posting this recipe. I'm glad I tried it and would definitely make this again!

      We enjoyed this tonight and it was easy to make. It was not hot at all from the jalapeños. But not knowing that at first I left them out until after I spread my DH piece with the mixture. Bert's Kitchen Witch thank you for posting this recipe. Made for 1-2-3 Hit Wonders 2007
