Southwestern Stuffed Chicken

What You'll Need:

  • 1 1/2 cups crushed cheese crackers
  • 2 tablespoons dry taco seasoning mix
  • 6 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves (1 to 2 pounds total)
  • 4 ounces Mexican-flavored processed cheese spread, cut into 6 cubes
  • 1/3 cup butter, melted

Make a Light Taco Tortilla Bowl

 

What To Do:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 6-cup muffin tin with cooking spray.
     
  2. In a shallow bowl, combine cracker crumbs and taco mix; set aside. With a kitchen mallet or rolling pin, gently pound chicken to 1/4-inch thickness between 2 pieces of wax paper.
     
  3. Place a cube of cheese in center of each chicken breast and roll up tightly, tucking in sides as you roll. Brush with melted butter, then roll in cracker crumb mixture, holding chicken securely closed and coating on all sides. Place each rolled breast seam side down in its own cup of the prepared muffin tin. 
     
  4. Bake 25 to 30 minutes, or until no pink remains and juices run clear. Serve immediately.
