Pepper Jack Stuffed Chicken
- 2 oz. Pepper Jack Cheese

Cut cheese into two 2 ¼ inch x 1 inch x ¾ inch strips. Flatten chicken to ¼ inch thickness. Place a strip of cheese down the center of each chicken breast half; fold chicken over cheese and secure with toothpicks. Rub Mexican seasoning over chicken. In a large skillet, brown chicken in oil on all sides. Transfer to a greased 8 inch square baking dish. Bake, uncovered, at 350º for 25 – 30 minutes or until chicken juices run clear. Discard toothpicks.
