Mexican Stuffed Chicken!

So, I have been on quite the blogging hiatus, bc I have been on a big cooking hiatus as well.  Life seems so busy lately, we are just trying to keep up! :) I don't know what dinner is like at your house, but we always seem to be scrounging around for a new idea... and by "we" I clearly just mean me. be serious.  So I decided last week I was going to make due with what we had in the house, ya know try my own version of Chopped. I always think to myself I could probably be on the show :) 

Okay, so I just started with two jalepenos... into the Magic Bullet, which is my favorite thing ever... 
 Then I added one small onion, a tablespoon of minced garlic, and a handful of cilantro. My measurements are exact so make sure you follow :) oops! 
 So I am slightly obsessed with laughing cow cheese...however, we don't eat a lot of carbs in the Richards home so sometimes I have to be a little creative to work this into our meals! This one is the chipotle one! 
 Pound out your chicken breasts until they are thin enough to be able to stuff and roll.  So I don't have a meat pounder, mallet thing.  I used a rolling pin.. and it did not do the job as effectively as I was hoping so mine are a little thick.  Spread one wedge of your laughing cow onto one chicken breasts. 
 Then spread your jalepeno onion mixture onto the cheese. 
 Then ROLL IT UP! :) Add toothpicks as needed to keep your stuffing in. 
 As you can see, my rolling was a little sub par, but my use of toothpicks was above and beyond... Mr. R could have had a punctured lung due to my use of toothpicks haha 
I had extra stuffing so I just put it on top of the chicken
 Bake chicken for 30 minutes at 350!  Then remove and add your favorite salsa! 
 We like cheese in this house...don't worry we arent picky... any cheese in any form will work, so I added pepper jack cheese to the top of the salsa and put back in the oven on BROIL 
 Don't forget to remove your toothpicks before eating, ENJOY!! :)
