Cheesy Serrano Stuffed Chicken

Cheesy Jalapeno Stuffed Chicken by

This just sounded good to me...and it was.  Maybe it was the grapefruit margaritas...but I think it was this chicken too.  

Cheesy Stuffed Chicken
  • 2 slices center cut bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 1 serrano pepper, chopped
  • 3 oz  cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 c shredded cheddar jack
  • 2 tbsp chopped chives
  • 3large chicken breasts pounded to 1/4" thick
  • 1/2 cup Italian seasoned whole wheat breadcrumbs
  • 1 1/2 juicy limes, juice of
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  •  non-stick spray
Place chicken cutlets on a working surface and spread 1/3 of cream cheese mixture on each cutlet. Loosely roll each one, secure the ends with toothpicks to prevent the cheese from oozing out.

Place breadcrumbs in a bowl; in a second bowl combine olive oil, lime juice, salt and pepper.

Dip chicken in lime-oil mixture, then in breadcrumbs and place seam side down on a baking dish. Repeat with the remaining chicken.Place in a lightly sprayed pan and bake at 425 degrees for 25 minutes or so (until the chicken is done).
