The crunchy coating and creamy jalapeño filling in this Jalapeno Popper-Stuffed Chicken is sure to be a hit!

  • 1/3 cup chives-and-onion cream cheese spread
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded pepper Jack cheese
  • 2 tablespoons chopped pickled jalapeño peppers
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 2 cups corn chips, crushed
  1. Heat oven to 350°F. In medium bowl, stir cream cheese spread, pepper Jack cheese and jalapeño peppers until well blended; set aside.
  2. Between pieces of plastic wrap or waxed paper, place each chicken breast; gently pound with flat side of meat mallet or rolling pin until about 1/4 inch thick.
  3. Place melted butter in shallow dish. Place crushed corn chips in separate shallow dish. Place about 1/3 cup cheese mixture on center of each chicken breast. Roll chicken over filling, tucking ends to enclose filling; secure with toothpick, if necessary. Dip filled chicken breasts into butter, then coat in crushed corn chips. Place in ungreased 8-inch square (2-quart) baking dish.
  4. Bake 40 to 45 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink in center.
