    Hubby and I thought this was good, and I thought it was also easy to prepare. I didn't have any breadcrumbs so I put some cheez-its in my food processor and used those. I also used cheap-o string cheese cut into chunks for the filling, and it seemed to work out well. I would have liked to add more spice, however I wanted my 1 year old to be able to eat it, which he did very happily. I would definitely make this recipe again. Thanks for posting it.

    This was so quick and easy. My chicken breasts were pretty huge so I butterflied them before pounding them and also added a little arugula with the cheese which made for a beautiful presentation and another layer of flavor. I used panko for the crumbs and served with brown rice with corn, peppers, cumin, and chili powder. Crispy outside, moist and creamy inside! This is going to stay in our regular rotation.

    I made 4 chicken breasts with this recipe. I cooked two and froze the other two to bake later. The breading is well seasoned and using a spicy pepper jack cheese inside the chicken was good. The chicken was moist. Thank you for sharing your recipe!

    These came out very well but I did make the mistake of getting distracted and used egg instead of butter to put the chicken in before the breadcrumb mixture. :( It worked really well, but I will have to try this again as written. I will add a little more spice to it though. Just my personal preference, and I will use this recipe again. Thank you. :)


I am happily married to my best friend and we just bought our first house! No kids but we have 2 little dogs that we think the world of. I was born in California and although I have been on the East Coast for most of my life I am still displaced! I love the beach and hate the cold! In our free time we love to go to the beach or the mountains and hike or intertube down the lazy Shenendoah River. It is so beautiful there! I have loved to cook all of my life and will read cookbooks like they are novels!
