  • Crunchy Chicken Surprise


    (Melted cheese, scallions and a dash of jalepeno rolled in a crunchy chicken breast.)


    2 Chicken Breasts (Medium-Large) - pounded
    2 Tbsp. Softened Butter
    3/4 Cup Shredded Cheddar Cheese
    3 Rings + Diced Jalapenos (from Jar good)
    2 Scallions diced (use scissors)
    1/8 Tsp. Pepper
    1/8 Tsp. Salt

    2 - 4 Toothpicks

    2 Cups Crumbled Corn Flakes (This is the cereal - crushed up by hand)
    2 Tbsp. Softened butter

    Flatten the two chicken breasts well with mallot.

    Combine 2 Tbsp. softened butter with the grated cheddar cheese, diced jalapenos, scallions, pepper, and salt, in a bowl, by hand, with a fork.

    Using half the mixture for each breast, "press firmly" the cheese mixture to the top upper half (widest end) of both breasts.

    Starting at mixture end - roll or fold up the breast the best you can, being sure to push in mixture as you go and fasten with one or more toothpicks. Place the chicken on to a sligtly greased (spray some Pam) glass pie dish.

    Smooth remaining 2 Tbsp. of softened butter on to the tops and sides of the breasts and top with well crushed corn flakes - pressing them into place on top and sides best you can. The more butter you use here the better they stick also the more crushed the flakes are the better they hold. "Parkay squeeze" style a good butter to work with. A generous amount of the corn flakes will fall into the dish which is fine, add all of it and use it later after your cut the breast up on your plate.

    Bake at 350 for 35 - 40 minutes until fully cooked. Varies by breast size.

    Serve the chicken with the extra corn flakes and melted cheese that remains in the dish.
