Quick and easy Jalapeno Popper Stuffed Chicken breast is spicy, cheesy, hearty, and made with simple ingredients.

This recipe is, basically, a chicken breast with a Jalapeno Popper stuffed inside. I covered the breast in panko, Japanese breadcrumbs, and baked them to perfection.

Jalapeno Popper Stuffed Chicken

  1. It’s easy to control the spice level. For less heat, remove the seeds and veins from the jalapenos. Jalapenos vary levels of heat. I recommend tasting a small amount before adding it to your recipe each time. If you don’t like much heat at all, you may want to substitute a poblano pepper.
  2. Depending on the thickness of your chicken, you may need to adjust the cooking time. Testing the chicken with an instant-read thermometer is the only way to know for sure it’s perfectly cooked. The safe internal temperature for cooked chicken is 165° Fahrenheit
  3. I recommend pounding the chicken with a meat mallet to make it a uniform thickness. It will cook more evenly.
  4. You can substitute any cheese for the cheddar cheese.
