2 large boneless chicken breasts 6 oz. cream cheese, softened 3/4 cup shredded Monterrey Jack cheese 2 small jalapeño peppers, chopped 1 cup flour 2 eggs, beaten 1 cup plain bread crumbs 1 tbsp. olive oil to taste salt & pepper 2 Butcher twine strings 1 cup Hot Pepper Jalapeno Kettle Cooked Potato Chips
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Cut a slit along the side of each chicken breast, approximately one inch long—just long enough to make a small pocket for the filling.
- In a mixing bowl, combine the cream cheese, Monterrey Jack cheese, and jalapeño and stir until well combined and creamy.
- Stuff a generous amount of the mixture into each chicken breast. Make sure you don’t overstuff them! They should be full, but able to close easily.
- Use butcher twine to secure the mixture inside the breasts.
- In three separate bowls, arrange the flour, eggs, and mixture of bread crumbs/potato chips and line them in that order.
- Coat the chicken breasts lightly in flour, then brush with or dip in the egg and lastly, coat the breasts completely in the bread crumbs/potato chip mixture.
- Once the chicken breasts are completely coated, drizzle olive oil on a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once the pan and oil are hot, sauté each breast for 3-5 minutes on each side or until golden brown.
- Place on a greased baking sheet and cook for an additional 20-25 minutes or until cooked thoroughly. Allow to cool for 5 minutes before serving.
