Jalapeno and Cheese Stuffed Chicken

I have been wanting to experiment with stuffed chicken breasts for a while. I had some leftover cheddar cheese in the refrigerator, and was trying to figure out what else to put in them. Since I wouldn't be eating, it only had to be something my husband likes, so I decided on jalapenos. Brian loves jalapenos and all things spicy. These came out great! The chicken was moist and the filling was perfectly spicy for him. Definitely a keeper!

Jalepeno and Cheddar Stuffed Chicken Breasts

  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • diced jalapenos, to taste (I used about 1/3 cup)
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs


  • Cut a slit in each of the chicken breasts. Stuff with cheese and jalapenos. Secure with a toothpick if needed.
  • Dip the chicken breasts into beaten egg, then into breadcrumbs to coat
  • Place the chicken in a baking dish and bake at 400 degrees for 20 - 25 minutes until done
