Crispy Baked Jalapeno Popper Chicken

Most who follow my blog know that I am obsessed with all things spicy. Luckily, my husband is too and one of his favorite spicy foods are Jalapenos so I knew this chicken would be a hit with him....and it was! A fun way to jazz up ordinary chicken breasts. Serve alongside rice and dinner is served!

Crispy Baked Jalapeno Popper Chicken
Serves 4
Cal 277, Carbs 12.2, Fat 13, Protein 31.7

4 boneless skinless chicken breasts (mine were 5 oz)
3 oz. reduced fat cream cheese
2 oz. reduced fat sharp cheddar cheese, cut into 4 cubes
3 tbsp. grated parmesan cheese
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 jalapeno, de-seeded and diced
1 cup breadcrumbs

Preheat oven to 400

Place an ovenproof rack onto a rimmed baking sheet. Spray with cooking spray.

In a small bowl, combine the cream cheese, parmesan cheese, garlic powder, and jalapeƱos.

Cut a small pocket into the side of each chicken breast, and evenly stuff with the cream cheese mixture and cheddar cheese.

Dip chicken pieces into the breadcrumbs, making sure to coat the chicken completely. Place each piece of chicken on baking rack and cook for about 25-30 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through. Enjoy!


  1. This sounds perfect for me! Not sure my husband would be a fan, but that's why I save the spicy recipes for night's he is on the road!
