Chicken is healthy for you so we always have chicken, but, sometimes you really have to get it spruced up so you don’t get tired of it. This time I tried a different “stuffing” for the chicken breast and it turned out AMAZING, I could literally make the stuffing and eat it with crackers! (:
4 large chicken breasts, sliced in half (making like a pocket for the stuffing)
8 ounces Cream Cheese, softened
1 small can diced Green Chiles
1/4 cup chopped onion
2 stalks celery, sliced fine
2 cloves garlic, minced
Generous amounts of the following seasonings: paprika, Italian, pepper, Chili powder, Cumin, and Ginger.
4 thick slices Pepper jack Cheese
4 thick slices Monterey Jack Cheese
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Mix in a bowl: cream cheese, celery, onion, green chiles, garlic until well combined. Divide the mixture among the four chicken breasts. In a separate bowl, combine all seasonings. Coat the chicken then in the seasoning mix. Place chicken in an oven-safe dish and cover with foil, then put in oven and bake approximately 1 hour (or until juices run clear and internal temperature reaches 165 degrees). Remove foil and top each breast with 1 slice of each cheese. bake an additional 10-15 minutes.
HAPPY COOKING! (:
