  • 4 ounces cream cheese softened
  • ¼ cup greek plain yogurt
  • 3 garlic cloves grated
  • 2 thick slices bacon cooked and crumbled
  • 3 jalapeno peppers seeded and finely chopped
  • 1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • ¼ cup grated romano cheese
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon salt optional
  • 6 chicken cutlets
  • additional salt and pepper
  • ½ cup panko breadcrumbs


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a medium bowl combine cream cheese, greek yogurt, garlic, bacon, jalapeno peppers, cheddar cheese, romano cheese, onion powder, and pepper. Mix together until all of the ingredients are combined. Give it a quick taste. Add salt if needed. *I find the amount of salt depends on the bacon. Some bacon is saltier than others. Set aside.
  • If the chicken cutlets are still on the thick side then place the chicken cutlet between two pieces of plastic wrap and use a meat mallet or rolling pin to pound it out to about ½ inch thick. The chicken will roll up – and stay rolled up – when it is about ½ inch thick.
  • Divide the jalapeno mixture among the 6 chicken cutlets. Roll up and sprinkle with a little salt and pepper.
  • Place the panko breadcrumbs into a medium bowl. Dip each rolled chicken cutlet into the panko (coating all sides) and place on a baking sheet that has been sprayed with cooking spray.
  • Bake for 40 minutes. Serve hot.


Make ahead instructions
Individually wrap cooked and cooled stuffed chicken in plastic wrap, placed in a large freezer bag, and stick in the freezer. Warm up in the microwave or in the oven. If you can, remember to take the chicken out the night before or in the morning the night you want to eat.
You can also freeze these before you make them. Flash freeze, then wrap in plastic wrap, and then place in a freezer bag and freeze. Again, take these out the night before to thaw a bit in the refrigerator. You might need to add a little extra cooking time if they are still frozen when you bake.
