Spicy Stuffed Chicken with Roasted Banana Peppers


Spicy Stuffed Chicken

A few weeks ago, Cody and I took a little road trip to Raleigh to see Mötley Crüe live (which was ridiculously awesome). While in Raleigh, we also visited some of his family. The day after the show we all had lunch together at a little hole in the wall Mexican joint and I gobbled up some fish tacos (which were also ridiculously awesome).

We were all discussing Chirpy, when Cody’s lovely aunt Marne told us about one of her favorite recipes to make: chicken stuffed with roasted banana peppers, queso blanco, seasoned with lots of cumin and cooked to perfection.

Our mouths watered as she explained it to us and we knew right away that we HAD to make it ourselves. She also gave us permission to shoot the recipe for Chirpy – thanks Aunt Marne!

Spicy Stuffed Chicken

With only 5 simple ingredients, this recipe is right up the Chirpy alley of quick and delicious meals. The roasted banana peppers works perfectly with the melted queso blanco and the cumin just brings out all the flavors together in the most wonderful way.

We seared the chicken in a pan and it took about 4-5 minutes on each side, but you can also secure the chicken with a skewer and grill it, which is what Cody’s aunt recommended.
