Ingredients

  • 3 Chicken Breasts pound slightly thinner
  • 3 small Jalapeno Peppers sliced in half; hollowed out
  • 3/8 cup Shredded Colby Jack Cheese divided
  • 6 Pepper Seasoning to taste

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Prepare your baking pan. I like to use this baking mat. It keeps the chicken up and gives it a nice crisp!

  2. Slightly pound your chicken a bit thinner and then slice the chicken open, leaving one side intact. 

  3. Slice your jalapeno peppers in half and hollow them out. Place half of the pepper in the chicken and cover with 1/8 cup shredded cheese. Set the other half of the pepper on top and close the chicken and secure with toothpicks (I use metal toothpicks. If you use wooden ones, soak in water first).

  4. Bake for about 40 minutes. Make sure you cook your chicken to an internal temp of 165 degrees.
