Shoutout to Elly Says Sopa for this one!
2 chicken breast
1/2 cup panko breadcrumbs
2 jalapeno peppers, seeds and ribs removed and minced
1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
2 oz. cream cheese, room temperature
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon cumin
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon cayenne
1/8 teaspoon onion powder
1/8 teaspoon parsley
1/8 teaspoon paprika
Salt and Pepper, to taste
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a shallow bowl, whisk egg for wash. In a separate shallow bowl, combine all seasonings and panko breadcrumbs. In a small bowl, cream together minced jalapeno peppers, cheddar and cream cheeses until combined. Prepare chicken for stuffing by slicing a small incision in lengthwise along the breast, almost butterflying to create a pocket. Stuff each breast with 1/2 the cheese mixtures. Dredge each breast through egg wash and then coat thoroughly with seasoned panko breadcrumbs. Place onto a greased baking pan. Cook in preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, or until internal temperature is 165 degrees and flesh is no longer pink. Enjoy!
