Ingredients

  • 3-4 Boneless skinless chicken breasts trimmed
  • 1 8 oz package cream cheese softened
  • 1 4 oz can chopped green chilis I prefer Old El Paso
  • 1 cup monterey jack cheese shredded
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp cumin
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper

Instructions

  • Heat the oven to 375F.
  • In a medium bowl, mix the cream cheese, garlic powder, cumin, salt and pepper until combined. Then stir in the green chilis and stir until evenly mixed.
  • Lay the chicken breasts flat in a baking dish. Cover the chicken breasts with the green chili mixture. Then top with the monterey jack cheese.
  • Bake on the middle rack for 35-45 minutes or until chicken is cooked through and the juices run clear.
  • Serve hot over spanish rice, greens, tortillas, or mashed potatoes. Enjoy!

Notes

Notes
  • You can cut the chicken in half, chunks, or use chicken tenderloins in lieu of full chicken breasts to make serving easier. Cooking time may be reduced.
  • Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container for 3-4 days in the refrigerator or in the freezer for up to a month.
