by Robin Broadfootfeatured in 5 Fiery Jalapeño Recipes


for 3 servings

  • 1 jalapeño, diced
  • 2 oz cream cheese (55 g)

  4. Dip the stuffed chicken in the flour, then the egg, then the bread crumbs, coating it evenly.
  5. Heat the oil in a large pan over medium heat. Preheat the oven to 350˚F (180˚C).
