Reverse Chile Relleno Chicken

Reverse Chile Relleno Chicken

Introduction

I love the flavors of a Chile Relleno at a Mexican restaurant. Gooey cheese, crispy crust, flavorful peppers - Yum! With this recipe, I decided to reverse the process for a more healthful but still delicious combination. I love the flavors of a Chile Relleno at a Mexican restaurant.

Ingredients

    2 6 oz boneless skinless chicken breasts
    1/2 anaheim chile pepper, julienned
    1/2 cup reduced fat shredded Mexican Cheese blend
    1 egg, beaten in a shallow dish
    3/4 cup dry bread crumbs in shallow dish
    1/4 tsp each of garlic powder, onion powder, dry oregano
    1/2 tsp cumin
    Cooking Spray

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Insert sharp knife into the middle of the thickest part of each chicken breast. Cut an even pocket into the breast, keeping the opening as small as possible. Sprinkle each breast with garlic powder, onion powder, oregano and cumin. Stuff each breast first with julienned strips of pepper, then with about a 1/4 cup of cheese (or as much as your little pocket will fit). Seal securely with toothpicks. Coat chicken in egg and then in bread crumbs. Place in shallow baking dish coated with cooking spray. Bake uncovered for 20 minutes. Remove and spray the top of the chicken breasts lightly with cooking spray. Cook for 10 minutes more. Makes 2 servings.
