Cheese and Jalapeno Stuffed Chicken Breasts

I made these the other day from a recipe I found online and they were WONDERFUL! This recipe should do about 8 chicken breasts. I did so many because I wanted some extra to take for lunch.

Several chicken breasts
2 large jalapeno peppers, chopped
1 box cream cheese, softened slightly
approx. 1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
2 cups panko bread crumbs
a little vegetable oil
2-3 eggs

Put oil in a frying pan and add bread crumbs. Cook the crumbs stirring often until they are golden brown. In a bowl mix the cream cheese, cheddar cheese and jalapenos. In another bowl put the eggs and beat with a fork.
Cut through the chicken breast until it is almost butterflied. Put some of the cheese-jalapeno mix inside. Close it again. Dip it in the egg and then the bread crumbs covering it complete. Put the breasts on a baking sheet that has a rack in it that has been sprayed with nonstick spray. Bake in the oven on 350 F. for one hour.

I tried to get a picture of what they looked like inside but the picture didn't come out well.


  1. Sounds great! A similar concept to Chicken Kiev. Do you know that one? Chicken stuffed with garlic butter and coated in breadcrumbs. Isn't the internet a wonderful resource for things like recipes?

  2. Crunchy savory cheesy spicy - sounds like a winner!

  3. Becky, that sounds delicious! Thanks for sharing the recipe! Blessings from Bama!

  4. mennonitegirlscancook recipe calls for feta cheese and tomatoes stuffed into the chicken breast and then broiled...i think that i might like your recipe better! my mouth is watering already so think i will try it this week for sure. besides, a little bit of heat is called for with the dropping temps!

  5. I really want to try these - my son is obsessed with cream cheese so these may be the things(minus the jalapenos) that make him actually eat dinner.

  6. Hi Beck it sounds delicious.I will have a go at making it.
