Jalapeno Popper Stuffed Chicken Breasts

Cook 15 mins

A creamy, spicy filled breast. Flash browning on the outside doesn't cook them through. Preheat your oven to finish cooking.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine the cream cheese, cheddar cheese, bacon, and jalapenos in a small bowl; mix well.
  2. Cut a pocket horizontally through the thickest side of each chicken breast; fill with 1/4 of the cheese mixture. Secure with toothpicks. Tip: If breasts are thick, before slitting, slightly poud the thickest part of the breast side. It, also, makes for a larger pocket. Don't pound too thin.
  3. Combine Panko bread crumbs, garlic powder, onion powder, pepper and Parmesan; place on a piece of waxed paper.
  4. Beat egg and water in a shallow bowl.
  5. Dip stuffed chicken breast in egg mixture, then into Panko mixture, coating well.
  6. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Brown chicken breasts on both sides until golden; place on a foil lined shallow baking sheet.
  7. Bake at 350 degrees in a preheated oven for about 15 minutes or until chicken is cooked through and juices run clear.

This was so delicious. I prepared it just as written. My husband who is NOT a poultry fan gobbled them up and even had them for leftovers the next day. Surprisingly tasted very much like poppers. A keeper for sure.
