New Mexico Green Chile con Queso Stuffed Chicken Breasts

  • YIELD: 6 Servings

Ingredients

  • 6 skinless boneless chicken breasts
  • 2 cups al dente cooked wild rice
  • 1/2 cup roasted and peeled New Mexico green chile
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup white onion
  • salt
  • black pepper
  • 1 cup corn flakes
  • 1 beaten eggs
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • *Salt
  • *Pepper

Instructions

  1. Mix together cooked rice, chile, cheese, and onion and onion powder. Rinse chicken thoroughly, and pat dry. Cut a slit in each breast to create a pouch that is open on one side only. Stuff each chicken breast with rice filling. Coat each stuffed breast with beaten egg, then coat in corn flakes and place in a lightly greased 9×13 inch baking dish. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Bake at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for 40 minutes, or until juices run clear. If the breasts dry out too quickly, cover loosely with a piece of foil.
