Posted on December 29, 2015 at 10:50 AM
3 pounds, boneless chicken breast, cooked
Jalapeno Popper Mixture:
3 slices bacon, diced
2 jalapenos, deveined, deseeded and diced
1 onion, diced
1 (8-ounce) package fat free cream cheese, softened
½ cup lite mayo or nonfat Greek yogurt
1 cup reduced fat shredded cheddar cheese
½ cup shredded Parmesan cheese
½ cup breadcrumbs
½ cup Parmesan cheese
4 tablespoons butter, melted
Cook chicken breasts. While chicken is cooking, prepare the jalapeno popper mixture for the chicken. Add bacon, jalapenos, and onions to a small skillet and fry until bacon is crispy and jalapenos and onions are tender. Remove from heat and add to a small mixing bowl. Add cream cheese, mayo or yogurt, and cheeses to mixing bowl and cream together with bacon mixture until well-combined.
Either spread the jalapeno popper mixture on top of chicken until well-covered OR dice cooked chicken into the jalapeno popper mixture & mix well.
For the topping, mix together breadcrumbs, cheese, and melted butter. Sprinkle on top of jalapeno popper topped chicken. Bake until the topping is lightly browned, about 15 minutes.
