Jalapeno Popper Chicken with Cajun Potatoes
Can you believe it’s already been 2 months since Super Bowl? Geesh! This recipe is an inspiration from a dip that I made for it. Quick Tomato Jalapeno Popper Dip from A Joyfully Mad Kitchen. Earlier that day I was browsing through Pinterest and found this recipe then made a special trip to the store just so I could make it. Worth it! It was just the special treat I was looking for.
While I ate and ate…..and ate on it (I couldn’t stop myself!) I thought about how great this would taste if I used it for the filling in my Cream Cheese Stuffed Chicken Roll Ups. Touchdown! I had a winner. Pair it with some potatoes sprinkled with my favorite Cajun seasoning and we have a dinner, Jalapeno Popper Chicken with Cajun Potatoes.
For this Mitten Movie Night we are drinking some Rapunzel from Arcadia Ales and watching Office Christmas Party. I know we are way off on seasons here but we don’t judge! I really love Arcadia Ales and recently paired my Under The Troll Bridge Pasties with their Hopmouth. That was a great meal and so is this one. The fruit and hop combo cannot be beat with the spiciness of this dish.
The chicken and potatoes can be made in two dishes but cooked together to save the guess work. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Starting with chopping the potatoes and onions into bite sized cubes. Drizzle with oil and Cajun seasoning then stir to combine and add to a small greased baking dish.
Thank you again to the Checkered Chef for letting me try out their awesome products!
For the chicken stuffing combine the jalapenos, chilies, garlic powder, salt, pepper, cheese, softened cream cheese and sour cream then stir to combine. Slice each chicken breast horizontally to make 2 equally sized pieces-will make 8 in total. Take a tenderizer with the flat side and pound out the chicken until it’s about 1/2 inch thick. Spread filing on the middle of the chicken then roll. Roll into the chicken coating then place in greased baking dish.
Put both dishes into the preheated over and cook for 45 minutes. Plate, crack open a beer and here you are….
