Instructions

Instructions are for 4 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
  2. Chop bell peppers and garlic finely. Sauté in oil until soft. Place in a bowl and reserve to cool for 5 minutes.
  3. Add jalapeños, spices and both cheeses to the bowl. Mix well.
  4. Cut chicken breasts lengthwise partway through, along the thinnest part, so you can open it like a book.
  5. Add a big dollop of cheese batter and close with a tooth pick. Season chicken with salt and pepper. Fry until golden brown, in oil or butter. Place in a baking dish.
  6. You can place the remaining cheese batter on top or just in the baking dish.
  7. Bake in oven for 20 minutes or until the chicken breasts are thoroughly cooked. Remember to remove the tooth pick before serving.
  8. Serve with leafy greens, a generous amount of guacamole, and sour cream.

Guacamole

  1. Peel the avocados and mash with a fork, grate or chop the onion finely, squeeze the lime and pour in the juice.
  2. Add tomato, olive oil and finely chopped cilantro. Season with salt and pepper to taste, and blend well.

Tip!

Don’t throw away that avocado pit! Place it in the guacamole to keep it green.

    Hello,

    I have one important question. One chicken breast consists of two parts. So for one serving it is the whole chicken breast with both of these parts? Or is one serving one half of this chicken breast? I was just confused, because some call the whole thing "chicken breast" and some call only one half of it "chicken breast".
    I know that I should eat until I don't feel hungry anymore, but I just need to know what is right :D
    I hope that you understand my question. :)
    Greetings from Germany!
