Jalapeno Popper Chicken

I love to use boneless, skinless chicken breasts for quick dinners; they are easily manipulated and cook in no time!

I came across some beautiful Hatch Chiles a few weeks ago and knew I had to roast them. Then I thought about what I can make for dinner and it came to me… a roasted pepper chicken dish! It then evolved into a jalapeno popper chicken dinner 🙂 I mean, who doesn’t love a jalapeno popper?

I worked on this recipe for a while until it reached perfection. So now I am officially ready to share it with you all 🙂

This is the perfect game day dish, so prepare it for your friends and family as you watch your favorite team win!


Here is my recipe:

Makes 4 servings  Prep: 30 minutes   Cook: 35 minutes



1 (8oz) package of cream cheese, room temperature

1/2 cup mild cheddar cheese

1/2 cup Greek yogurt

1/4 cup mayo

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1 cup panko bread crumbs

2 tablespoons melted butter

1 tablespoon olive oil

1/2 cup finely chopped onion

1/2 cup roasted jalapeno, diced (see instructions below)

3-4 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts



1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Beat chicken with a pan to thin into 1/4 inch thickness.

Place chicken in between two pieces of parchment paper and beat with a heavy pan.

2. Season chicken breast with half of the salt (1/4 teaspoon), pepper (1/4 teaspoon) and garlic powder (1/4 teaspoon). Coat bottom of pan with olive oil and place chicken in pan. Top with chopped onion. Cook for 20 minutes or until chicken is fully cooked.


3. Roast jalapenos on open flame. Peel away charred skin using a paper towel. Chop into small pieces. If you like more heat, leave in the seeds. If you like a more mild heat, omit the seeds 🙂
