Cheese & Jalapeño Baked Stuffed Chicken


This meal is officially one of my favorites, healthy…and delicious.  I have to admit the kids weren’t crazy about the southwest salad, and I made their chicken without the jalapeno mixture, just in case it was too spicy.  I will definitely be making this yummy dish again!



Ingredients for chicken: 
·                     2 slices center cut bacon, cooked and crumbled (I used Turkey)
·                     3 jalapeños, chopped (removed seeds for mild)
·                     3 oz 1/3 less fat cream cheese, softened
·                     4 oz reduced fat shredded cheddar jack 
·                     8 thin sliced skinless chicken breast cutlets, 3 oz each-or four full breasts, sliced in 1/2
·                     1 1/2 to 2 cups Italian seasoned whole wheat breadcrumbs (or regular whole wheat bread crumbs with italian seasoning mixed in, or regular italian seasoning breadcrumbs)
·                     1 1/2 juicy limes, juice of (I used 3 limes)
·                     1 tbsp olive oil
·                     salt and fresh pepper
·                     olive oil non-stick spray

Ingredients for southwest bean and corn salad: 
  • 1 1/2 to 2-cups corn
  • 1-can black beans, rinsed & drained
  • 1/2-small or med red onion, minced
  • 1-Avocado, chopped
  • 1/8 to 1/4 cup of chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2-Tbl Oil
  • garlic salt to taste

Directions Chicken:
Wash and dry chicken cutlets, season with salt and pepper.  Preheat oven to 450°. Lightly spray a baking dish with non-stick spray.

Combine cream cheese, cheddar, scallions, jalapeño and bacon crumbles in a medium bowl.

Lay chicken cutlets on a working surface and spread 2 tbsp of cream cheese mixture on each cutlet. Loosely roll each one, secure the ends with toothpicks to prevent the cheese from oozing out.

Place breadcrumbs in a bowl; in a second bowl combine olive oil, lime juice, salt and pepper.

Dip chicken in lime-oil mixture, then in breadcrumbs and place seam side down on a baking dish. Repeat with the remaining chicken. When finished, lightly spray the top of the chicken with oil spray.
Bake 22-25 minutes, serve immediately

Directions southwest bean and corn salad:
mix all ingredients together & serve w/chicken!
