This is a recipe I came up with...one of my "throw-togethers".

I originally used a can of Campbell's Southwest PepperJack Cheese Soup in the recipe, but had to replace it with the PepperJack cheese and evaporated milk. Campbell's stopped making that particular soup :-((

How to Make PEPPERJACK CHICKEN BAKE

Step-by-Step

  1. Between 2 sheets of plastic wrap, pound each chicken breast to about 1/2 inch thickness.
    Sprinkle with the 2 teaspoons of salt and the teaspoon of black pepper.
    Dredge lightly in the flour.
    In a large skillet, in the 4 tablespoons of olive oil, on a medium heat, sear the chicken breasts until lightly browned.
    Place each breast, single layered, in a large baking dish or roasting pan (about 11 inch x 15 inch).
  2. Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees.
  3. In a food processor, place the tomato, onions, jalapeno pepper, garlic, cilantro, the 1/4 tsp. of salt, sour cream, wine, shredded cheese, and milk.
    Pulse until well blended.
    Spoon mixture over the chicken breasts.
    Bake in 375 degree oven for 30 to 35 minutes.
  4. Serve on a bed of hot noodles or steamed rice with slices of avocado on top.
  5. NOTE: If you don't like a lot of spicy heat, remove the seeds from the jalapeno pepper. My family loves the heat...lol..
