Cheese & Jalapeno-Stuffed Chicken

4 comments

Only a few ingredients are needed to create this intensely flavored Cheese & Jalapeno-Stuffed Chicken. However if jalapenos aren’t your favorite,  switch them for something else like…sun-dried tomatoes, artichokes, or olives. This recipe is so versatile, you can change the entire flavor of the dish by subsisting just one ingredient.

JalapenoStuffedChicken1Butterfly cut the breasts and pound with a mallet to thin. In a bowl cream together the cheeses and jalapenos until smooth. Divide mixture into 4, and place into center of each chicken breast. Roll chicken up and secure with toothpicks (if desired) so cheese doesn’t melt out. Rub each with oil then dredge in a bowl filled with the bread crumbs. Place on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake at 450°F for 30-40 minutes or until fully cooked.

    where do you buy GF panko and cream cheese?

    what do you use to thicken gravy?

    Kinnikinnick brand makes gluten free panko crumbs, and it should be available in most large grocery stores or health food stores. Plain cream cheese is naturally gluten free, but if you buy any flavored varieties you should always check the label.
    To thicken gravy you can you cornstarch, potato starch or arrowroot starch.
