Ingredients (for 3 servings)
2 tablespoons canola oil, for veggies
1 red bell pepper, diced
1 green bell pepper, diced
1 yellow bell pepper, diced
1 onion, diced
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
4 oz cream cheese(110 g)
½ cup shredded cheddar cheese(50 g)
½ cup pepper jack cheese(50 g), diced
3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons chili powder
2 teaspoons cumin
2 teaspoons garlic powder
3 tablespoons canola oil, for chicken
salsa, for serving
sour cream, for serving
guacamole, for serving
Heat the canola oil (for the veggies) in a pan over high heat. Cook the peppers, onion, salt, and pepper until soft and slightly caramelized.
Transfer the cooked veggies to a bowl. In the same bowl, mix in the cream cheese, cheddar, and pepper jack, stirring until evenly incorporated. Set aside.
In a separate bowl, combine the chicken with the salt, chili powder, cumin, and garlic powder, evenly distributing the spices over the chicken.
On a cutting board, slice a pocket in the chicken horizontally.
Fill the pocket with a heaping spoonful of the veggie mixture. Press the edges of the chicken together to seal in the filling. Repeat with the remaining chicken.
Heat the canola oil in a pan over medium heat. Cook the stuffed chicken for five minutes on each side, until cheese is melted and chicken is cooked through.
Serve with salsa, sour cream, and guacamole!
