Some of the ingredients you will use for this Jalapeño Popper chicken recipe include the panko bread crumbs, vegetable oil, some taco seasoning (the recipe for this is on the site), egg, cream cheese and some shredded cheddar cheese. You will also need some jalapeño peppers with the seeds and ribs removed and some chicken breasts. To start preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit, and spray a glass baking dish with some non stick cooking spray or grease and put aside. In a small pan combine the panko crumbs and oil over medium heat. Cook the crumbs while stirring often, until they are a nice golden brown and crispy. Then place the mixture in a shallow dish or bowl. Add the taco seasoning to the cooked panic crumbs and stir to combine the two. Then in another shallow dish, beat an egg, and in another bowl combine the cream cheese, japapeno and shredded cheddar cheese.
Use a small knife to cut a pocket on the side of each piece of boneless chicken breast, then season the chicken with some salt and pepper and put the cream cheese mixture into each of the chicken breast pockets. You can use a toothpick to secure the chicken breast if needed. Next you can dip each of the chicken breasts into the egg mixture and then coat afterwards with the panic mixture, coating the chicken recipe entirely. Then put the chicken into the prepared dish and cook for approximately 25 to 30 minutes or until the chicken is cooked throughly.
