Description

Not your ordinary spinach-stuffed chicken breasts. I used some mayonnaise and some sour cream, and whatever I had on hand.

Ingredients
  • ½ cup shredded habanero-flavored Cheddar cheese, or to taste
  • ⅓ cup mayonnaise, or as needed
  • ⅓ cup sour cream, or as needed
  • ¼ cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 2 tablespoons canned diced jalapeno peppers
  • 6 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
  • 1 (10 ounce) package frozen chopped spinach, cooked, well drained
  • toothpicks
  • 8 slices jalapeno bacon
Directions
  1. 1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. 2. Combine habanero-flavored Cheddar cheese, mayonnaise, sour cream, feta cheese, and diced jalapenos in a bowl; set aside.
  3. 3. Spread out a layer of plastic wrap and place chicken breasts on top. Dribble a few drops of water on the chicken to ensure even pounding. Cover with another layer of plastic wrap and pound chicken breasts to about 1/4 to 1/2-inch thickness.
  4. 4. Spread cheese mixture onto each chicken breast, add a thin layer of spinach, roll up, and secure with toothpicks.
  5. 5. Microwave bacon for 1 minute, then wrap around stuffed breasts. Set in a baking dish.
  6. 6. Bake in the preheated oven until chicken is no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, 35 to 45 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).
  7. 7. Set an oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and turn on the oven's broiler.
  8. 8. Broil chicken, turning often, until bacon is crisp, 3 to 5 minutes.
