Ingredients

  • 6

    skinless, boneless chicken breast

  • For the jalapeno popper topping:

  • 3

    slices bacon, diced

  • 2

    jalapenos, deveined, deseeded and diced

  • ¼

    cup diced onion

  • 1

    (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened

  • ½

    cup mayonnaise or Greek yogurt

  • 1

    cup shredded cheddar cheese

  • ½

    cup shredded Parmesan cheese

  • For the topping:

  • ½

    cup crushed butter crackers (½ sleeve)

  • ½

    cup Parmesan cheese

  • 4

    tablespoons butter, melted

Directions

Preheat oven to 425º F. Place chicken breasts in a small casserole dish and bake until juices run clear when pricked, about 45 minutes. While chicken is baking, prepare jalapeno popper topping for chicken. Add bacon, jalapenos, and onions to a small skillet and fry until bacon is crispy and jalapenos and onions are tender. Remove from heat and add to a small mixing bowl. Add cream cheese, mayonnaise or yogurt, and cheeses to mixing bowl and cream together with bacon mixture until well-combined. Remove chicken from oven and reduce oven heat to 350º F. Spread jalapeno popper topping on top of chicken until well-covered. For the topping, mix together crushed crackers, cheese, and melted butter. Sprinkle on top of jalapeno popper topped chicken. Bake until crackers are lightly browned, about 15 minutes. Serve warm.
