Ingredients

    4 Chicken Breast
    4 Tbs. Lowfat Cream Cheese
    12 Jalapeno pepper rings (canned), diced
    Freshly ground salt and pepper

    For the Peri-Peri Marinade (I highly recommend preparing this the day before, so you can let the chicken marinate overnight...it makes for the most tender, juicy chicken! If you're in a rush, let chicken soak in marinade for at least 30 minutes):
    Juice of half a lemon
    Juice of half a lime
    2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
    2 teaspoons crushed chillies (OR 2 tsp. Dried Red Chili Pepper Flakes)
    1 teaspoon paprika
    1 teaspoon oregano
    cup apple cider vinegar
    1 tsp. Smoke flavor (optional)
    Sea salt and black pepper

    Mix the above marinade ingredients in a bowl.

    Place the chicken breasts in the marinade and ensure that each piece is fully coated.

    Cover the bowl with cling flim and place in the refridgerator overnight (or 30 minutes at least).

Directions

Preheat oven to 200 celcius.

Heat a non-stick frypan on medium-high heat until hot and sear your chicken breasts for 1-2 minutes on each side (until nicely browned on both sides).

Mix cream cheese, jalapeno's, salt and pepper in a small bowl.

Carefully slice each chicken breast along the middle creating a "pocket" (be careful not to cut all the way through) and fill each pocket with cream cheese mixture (about 1.5 Tbs in each).

Wrap chicken breast (individually) in foil and place in the oven for 20-25 mins or until cooked through.

Serve immediately!
