Jalapeno Popper Chicken

Jalapeno Popper Chicken is an original recipe inspired by my sweet baby! When I was pregnant with him I found a whole new love for jalapeno poppers and could not get enough. I had to find a way to turn it into a healthy meal, so here it is!
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, halved
  • 5 oz cream cheese, softened
  • Pickled Jalapenos (about 1/3 cup, depending on how spicy you want it)
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 tsp each parsley and basil
  • S & P


Preheat oven to 375.

Pound out each chicken breast half to 1/4 inch thickness. Spread about a TBSP of cream cheese on the chicken breasts, top with jalapenos, and roll up starting at the wide end. Secure with Toothpicks. Salt and pepper each piece of chicken.

Combine flour, parsely, and basil. Dip each chicken breast into flour mixture, then brown up in a pan over medium-high heat. Bake atg 375 for 20 - 30 minutes. Time depends on size of chicken breast. It will need to reach 165 on a thermometer.

Enjoy! It is sure to be a family favorite!

Throwing out some thoughts

Hurray! I finally am sitting down to write my first blog, at least the first one I have written in many, many years. It seems I have lost my sit down and rant touch, because I have been wanting to start a blog for months maybe even years - yet nothing ever comes to mind. Well today I thought I would write one on a project my husband and I are working on, finishing the Bonus Room! We just bought our house in June, and have been trying hard to make it our own. We have an unfinished room over our 2 car garage and want to turn it into a family room/laundry room/guest room/ play room. My decorating idea is a jungle theme. Im not going to heavy on it because it is a multi purpose room. For the adult area I want a leopard throw and maybe some knick knacks. The kids area will have monkeys and such. I have a lot of green decor because thats how we always did our apartments. So thats what originated the idea. Here is a few things I have picked out for the room:
Zoomed: Natural Floors by USFloors Avalon Maple Locking Strip and Plank
This is the floor we are doing through out the house. Its called Autumn Maple.
The fan I have been staring at everytime I walk by it in Lowes looks a lot like this. It needs a place in my home after 2 years of drooling over it. I love it!!!
Then the paint color is called Whispering Wheat. Its very warm and reminds me of a light coffee....gee I wonder why I like it =)
Well that is all for now! I have a very bored toddler who wants to play.
