This is one of our new favorite chicken dishes. The jalapeno popper sauce was on point - tasted like you had just cracked a jalapeno popper right over the chicken. I prefer to bake my chicken rather than cook it in a skillet because I rarely screw up baked chicken. If you like to cook yours in a skillet, go for it! It's no big deal.
Recipe from Mommie Cooks
What you need:
- 3 chicken breasts
- Chili powder
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 3 jalapenos, seeded and chopped
- 4 oz. cream cheese
- 1/2 cup chicken broth
- 3 slices bacon
- 1 tbsp. diced green onions
- 3/4 cup shredded cheddar
Sprinkle cumin, chili powder, and salt on each chicken breast.
Bake chicken in oven at around 400 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes or until cooked all the way through.
Meanwhile, add jalapenos to pan with reserved bacon grease. Let cook for a couple of minutes.
Add in garlic and cook until fragrant.
Add broth and deglaze pan. If you like a thinner sauce, add a little more broth.
Add cream cheese; let melt completely and then add cheddar cheese.
