Cheesy Jalepeno Stuffed Baked Chicken Recipe

I have been craving jalapenos lately... crazy I know.  Today for lunch, I made Cheesy Jalepeno Stuffed Baked Chicken.  It was absolutely delicious and definitely hit the spot!


  • 1 jalapeno, chopped (remove seeds for milder taste)
  • 3 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 4 oz shredded cheese (I used Mexican blend)
  • 3-4 chicken breasts
  • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs
  • Italian seasoning
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • salt and pepper


Wash and dry chicken breasts.  Make a slice through each one, making room for your filling.  Season with salt and pepper.

Preheat your oven to 450.  Lightly spray a baking dish with non-stick cooking spray.

Combine cream cheese, shredded cheese, and jalapenos in a small bowl.  Spread cream cheese mixture into each chicken breast.  Fold chicken breast halves together to close.  

Place breadcrumbs in a bowl and season with Italian seasoning.  Combine lime juice, olive oil, salt, and pepper in a separate bowl.

Dip chicken in lime-oil mixture, then in the breadcrumbs and lay it on your baking dish.  Once you have done this with all of your chicken, brush the remaining lime-oil mixture over your chicken and put your baking dish in the oven.

Bake 20-25 minutes and serve.  I served mine with mashed potatoes.
You can make modifications to suit your family.  I left the jalapenos out of Gia's piece so it wouldn't be too spicy for her.  You could also add scallions and crumbled bacon to your cream cheese mixture if you like.  My family devoured this meal and we will definitely be having it again soon... it was super yummy!
