Hungry girl recipe. Really delicious. I marinated in jalapeno liquid and pickle juice for about 2 hours.

Recipe Ingredients for Jalapeno Popper Chicken

1/4 cup fiber one bran cereal
1/8 tsp. garlic powder
1/8 tsp. onion powder
1 dash cayenne pepper
158 g 5-oz. raw boneless skinless lean chicken breast cutlet, pounded to 1/2-inch thickness
1 dash salt
1 dash black pepper
1 wedge Light Garlic & Herb
6 oz chopped jarred jalapeņo slices (about 6 slices)
1 tbsp. fat-free liquid egg substitute (like Egg Beaters Original)

Recipe Directions for Jalapeno Popper Chicken

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a baking pan with nonstick spray and set aside.

  2. Place cereal in a sealable plastic bag and, removing as much air as possible, seal. Using a meat mallet (or other heavy utensil), carefully crush cereal to a breadcrumb-like consistency through the bag. Add garlic powder, onion powder, and cayenne pepper, and shake to mix. Set aside.

  3. Place chicken cutlet flat on a clean and dry surface; season with salt and black pepper. Spread the upward-facing side with cheese and evenly top with chopped jalapeņo. Carefully roll up the cutlet over the filling. If needed, secure with toothpicks. Lightly cover all exposed areas of the chicken with egg substitute. Using your fingers or a spoon, evenly coat with breadcrumb mixture.

  4. Place chicken roll in the baking pan. Cover the pan with foil, and bake in the oven for 20 minutes.

  5. Carefully remove foil and return pan to the oven, uncovered, to bake until chicken is cooked through, about 15 minutes.

  6. Let cool slightly, remove toothpicks (if using), and dig in!
