Fajita Stuffed Chicken

Because stuffed chicken is better than regular chicken.

Makes 3.

INGREDIENTS
2 Tablespoons canola oil (for veggies)
1 red pepper, diced
1 green pepper, diced
1 yellow pepper, diced
1 onion, diced
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
4 ounces cream cheese
½ cup shredded cheddar cheese
½ cup diced pepper jack cheese
3 boneless skinless chicken breasts
2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons chili powder
2 teaspoons cumin
2 teaspoons garlic powder
3 Tablespoons canola oil (for chicken)
Salsasour cream, and guacamole for serving

PREPARATION
Heat the canola oil in a pan over high heat. Cook the peppers, onion, salt, and pepper until soft and slightly caramelized. Transfer the cooked veggies to a bowl. In the same bowl, mix in the cream cheese, cheddar, and pepper jack, stirring until evenly incorporated. Set aside.

In a separate bowl, combine the chicken with the salt, chili powder, cumin, and garlic powder, evenly distributing the spices over the chicken.

On a cutting board, slice a pocket in the chicken horizontally and fill the pocket with a heaping spoonful of the veggie mixture. Press the edges of the chicken together to seal in the filling. Repeat with the remaining chicken.

Heat the canola oil in a pan over medium heat. Cook the stuffed chicken for five minutes on each side, until cheese is melted and chicken is cooked through.

Serve with salsa, sour cream, and guacamole!
