Stuffed Jalapeno Popper Chicken Recipe

Stuffed Jalapeño Popper Chicken, a staple snack, is elevated with a flavorful blend of sautéed jalapeños, cream cheese, cheddar cheese, garlic, and bacon.  


– 6 slices uncooked bacon, cut into 1/2-inch piece – 2 large jalapeños, stemmed, seeded and diced – 3 scallions, green and white parts divided – 2 cloves garlic, minced – 4 oz. cream cheese, at room temp – 1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese – 4 medium chicken breast – 1 cup Panko breadcrumb – Vegetable oil, for cooking

Place bacon in a large skillet over medium-low heat. Stir occasionally until bacon fries and fat renders. A slotted spoon removes bacon to a medium bowl, leaving 2 tablespoons skillet drippings.  

Step 1


Add jalapeños and stir for 2 minutes. Add chopped garlic and white onions to skillet. Stir garlic for 2 minutes to fragrant. Add the jalapeño mixture to the bowl with the bacon.  

Step 2

Basin with cheddar and cream cheese. Without cutting each chicken breast, cut a longitudinal pocket. Press the edges of chicken breasts to seal the jalapeño filling.   

Step 3

Bread the stuffed chicken breasts on all sides in a large shallow bowl. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Parchment baking sheets. Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet on medium-high.   

Step 4

Pan-sear two chicken breasts for 3 minutes on each side, then transfer to the baking sheet. Bake chicken breasts 10–15 minutes at 165°F. Remove chicken breasts from oven. Garnish chicken with green scallions before serving.
