Cooking with Ms Moore : Fajita Stuffed Chicken Breast

Hey dolls!

On Facebook I follow a page called Tasty, that is full of great recipes that I always share on my page to make later, but never actually do… Until now! I have a new obsession with stuffed chicken breast -lol- well here’s another one (i changed the original recipe a little bit)!

Ingredients:

  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil (for veggies)
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup chopped red pepper
  • 1/4 cup chopped green pepper
  • dash of salt
  • dash of pepper
  • 3 tbsp cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 chicken breast
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil (for chicken)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cumin powder
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder

Directions:

  1. Heat oil in a pan over high heat. Cook the peppers, onions, salt and pepper until the veggies are soft and slightly caramelized.     Transfer cooked veggies to a bowl.
  2. In the same bowl, mix in cream cheese and cheddar cheese, stirring until evenly mixed. Set aside.  
  3. In a separate dish, combine chicken with salt, chili powder, cumin & garlic powder. Make sure spices are evenly distributed over the chicken.  
  4. On a cutting board, slice a pocket in the chicken horizontally and fill the pocket with a spoonful of veggie mixture.        Press the edges of the chicken together to seal the filling. (I overstuffed my chicken, so it was a bit messier and fuller than I had wanted lol)
  5. Heat oil in a pan over medium heat. Cook the stuffed chicken for about 5 minutes on each side, until cheese is melted and chicken is cooked through.    
  6. Serve with salsa and sour cream.    

Hope you enjoy this Tasty dish! Comment below and let me know what you think.
