Cheesy Jalapeno Popper Chicken is the way to go!

Doesn’t this beautiful weather just make you want to go outside and exercise? Yeah, well me neither.

But just in case you are trying to lose a few lbs, brother Kyle sent me this yummy recipe.

Kyle said it’s delish and doesn’t taste like low-anything.

Sounds good to me. Even better would be to get Hugh Jackman to come and cook it for me. Cheesy Jalapeño Popper Baked Stuffed Chicken Ingredients:

2 slices center cut bacon, cooked and crumbled

3 jalapeños, chopped (remove seeds for milder)

3 oz 1/3 less fat cream cheese, softened

4 oz reduced fat shredded cheddar jack (Sargento)

2 tbsp chopped scallions

8 thin sliced skinless chicken breast cutlets, 3 oz each

1/2 cup Italian seasoned whole wheat breadcrumbs

1 1/2 juicy limes, juice of

1 tbsp olive oil salt and fresh pepper olive oil non-stick spray Directions:

Wash and dry chicken cutlets, season with salt and pepper.

Preheat oven to 450°. Lightly spray a baking dish with nonstick 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 keep 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.
