Had this tonight and it was so good! A side of the zucchini noodles rounded out the meal perfectly! I was so satisfied!!! :)

It was really tasty. I did, however, have to leave it in the oven a lot longer then 15 - 20 minutes. And it's a good idea to over the dish when placing it in the oven. Another dish my kids would like to see once a week. :-)

This was really good! I'll definitely make it again. I altered it a little by rolling the chicken in taco seasoning and cooking it in a skillet for 6 min each side instead of the oven. Awesome recipe! :)

I made this last night for dinner and it was delicious. I substituted the salt and pepper for garlic and herb spices and used Sargento Pepper Jack cheese (half a slice for each piece of chicken). I will def be making this again!
Had a version of this for dinner last night. I also added diced onion to the stuffing of cheese. I didn't used red pepper, because I didn't have any. I just used more diced onion on the top. Both me and my fiance LOVED IT!!!!! One of the things you can only make one serving of or you'll just go back for more. LOL. We will definitely be having it again. Pepper Jack and chicken are staples in our house.

Quick, Simple and Der-Licious!!! I didn't use cooking spray on the chicken. I did use one and a half slices each of pepper jack cheese in each breast and seasoned with salt, pepper, garlic and a seasoning blend that I rubbed in the breast. I also cooked it for 25 minutes. Lovely!!
