  • 1/2 cups - breadcrumbs (panko preferred)
  • 2 teaspoons - olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons - taco seasoning
  • 1 - egg
  • 2 - reduced fat cream cheese
  • 1/4 - cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 2 - jalapenos, minced
  • 2 - chicken breasts
  • Directions:

    1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a baking sheet with foil and place a wire rack on top. Spray with cooking oil.

    2. In a small skillet, combine breadcrumbs and oil over medium heat. Cook until breadcrumbs are golden and crispy, stirring frequently, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat and transfer to a shallow dish. Add the taco seasoning to breadcrumbs and stir to combine.

    3. In another shallow dish, lightly beat an egg. In a small bowl, combine cream cheese, cheddar cheese and jalapenos.

    4. Using a small knife, cut a pocket into the side of each chicken breast. Try to get as deep as possible without puncturing the opposite side. Divide the cream cheese mixture evenly and spoon into each chicken breast pocket. Use toothpicks to secure.

    5. Dip chicken in egg mixture and then into breadcrumbs, making sure to evenly and completely coat the chicken. Place chicken on prepared wire rack on baking sheet and cook for 25-30 minutes, until chicken is completely cooked through.
