I’d been thinking about this fun spin on chicken boobs since Elly posted it a couple of months ago. Then, Courtney went and mentioned that she’d made it – and already added it to her menu plan again the following week. So, after great reviews from two of my favorite bloggers, I added it to our menu too. And, I’m happy to report that we all loved it too!

I’ve been trying to make the most out of the jalapenos I’ve been plucking from the garden, and this dish really showcased them. It’s spicy – but not too much, the boys still enjoyed it. And, that smokey flavor that’s naturally found in jalapenos really shined through as well. I also loved the technique of browning the breadcrumbs in a skillet with a bit of oil first, then coating the chicken cutlets in the toasted breadcrumbs and finishing off in the oven. Gave it a super crunchy texture – something that’s hard to come by with just baking.

This one is definitely a keeper!

    My family hates jalapenos so I haven’t been able to try this yet but yours looks so tasty! I may just have to sneak it on them. :)

    It definitely seems like a great idea to toast the panko first! I’ve got this on the menu plan for the weekend and I can’t wait to try it like that!
