“Cheesy” Crusted Jalapeno Popper Chicken

Recipe by: Amy Clevenger, FitFunandFantastic.wordpress.com


- 3 Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts

- 1 cup Low Fat Cottage Cheese

- 1/2 – 1 diced jalapeno (depending on how hot you want it)

- Nutritional Yeast

- Onion Powder

- Garlic Powder


Preheat oven to 375 F. Cover a cookie sheet with parchment paper.

Mix the cottage cheese and diced jalapeno. Then in a separate bowl mix nutritional yeast, onion powder, and garlic powder.

Butterfly chicken breasts then stuff the cottage cheese jalapeno mixture inside the chicken breasts. Take the nutritional yeast mixture and sprinkle onto the top of the chicken breasts until they are completely covered.

Bake for about 40 minutes (my chicken breasts were large). Once the chicken cooks through put the oven on broil for 2 -3 minutes to make the top a little crispy.

I hope you all enjoy this as much as I do!

NOTE: Don’t have nutritional yeast? Use cheese!
