This Stuffed Chicken Will “Pop!”

I tend to enjoy “hot” and “spicy” foods.  So when I found this recipe, I was anxious to give it a try . . . I was not disappointed.  It is a bit labor intensive (and certainly will not make your heart doctor’s list of recommended foods), but well worth the effort.

Jalapeño Popper Stuffed Fried Chicken

Ingredients
3 chicken breasts
1 cup of mozzarella cheese
1 cup of cheddar cheese
1 cup of cream cheese
1/2 cup of crispy bacon
1/2 cup of jalapeños, diced
black pepper
2 cups of buttermilk
1-1/2 cups of flour
1 Tablespoon of paprika
1 Tablespoon of cayenne pepper
1 Tablespoon of garlic powder
1 Tablespoon of salt
1 Tablespoon of black pepper
Salt and pepper to taste

Directions
1.  In a bowl, combine your cream cheese, mozzarella, cheddar cheese, bacon, jalapeños, and black pepper.  Spoon onto a sheet of cling wrap adn roll into the shape of a sausage and put it in the freezer to set.

2.  In the meantime, bash out your chicken breasts between two sheets of cling wrap.  Season well with salt and pepper.  Cut a piece of the “popper” mix amd place on your chicken breasts.  Roll the breasts up like a burrito and secure with a toothpick.

3.  Dunk each chicken roll into the buttermilk.  Season your flour with the spices, salt, and pepper.  Dredge your buttermilked chicken roll into the seasoned flour to coat evenly.

4.  Fry the chicken rolls in hot oil for 3 minutes (or so).  Transfer to a tray with a rack and put in the oven at 350 degrees for 10 minutes.

Enjoy!
