Houlihan's is known for some great meals, and these Jalapeno Popper Stuffed Chicken Breasts are one of my favorites that they do. Butterflied chicken breasts, stuffed with cream cheese, diced jalapenos, and coated in a crispy breadcrumb crust. This weeknight dinner may seem fancy, but it's easy to prepare and a crowd-pleaser.
Today, I am resharing on of my favorite-- and most popular recipes. I thought it was time to get some updated pictures on here!
Houlihan's serves their Jalapeno Popper Chicken Breasts only on Thursdays, and ever since we first had it, my sister has been asking me to recreate the recipe!
Here is what I have come up with. I do think it is VERY similar. Houlihan's version does not have diced jalapeno in the filling, but I think it only adds to the the flavor and texture. If you need to dial down the heat, you can remove the seeds and white membrane before you dice it.
If desired, the filling amount could easily be doubled, and you could stuff 4 chicken breasts instead of two.
Another tip-- if you are unable to find jalapeno jelly, Buffalo Wild Wings Asian Zing sauce works great as a substitute and can be found at most grocery stores.
