Cheesy Jalapeno Chicken Video Transcript

Hi, Kristy in the Rada Kitchen, and today I’m making a recipe for Cheesy Jalapeno Chicken. This uses the Rada Quick Mix Jalapeno Cheeseball. It makes recipes as well as cheeseballs. You’ll need 3 to 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts that I’ve pounded thin. We’re going to go to the stove and brown those in a nonstick pan.

Now, in a nonstick skillet, medium-high heat, we’re going to add a teaspoon of vegetable oil and we’re going to brown the chicken about 3 to 4 minutes on each side. So we’re going to brown this chicken for 3 to 4 minutes on each side. This is really easy to turn. I’m using the Rada Granny Fork. It’s easy to pick up meats in a pan. You can use it as a pickle fork to get pickles out of the jar. It’s a handy little tool. This is actually an item you can sell as a fundraiser, you make 40% profit. Church groups, clubs, teams, youth groups, they’re 100% made in the USA and come with a lifetime guarantee. They’re really easy to sell because everyone can use useful kitchen items. An individual item like this is less than $5.

Once the chicken is nicely browned we will transfer it to a baking dish. I’m using this Rada Rectangular Baker, it’s stoneware, it bakes even and keeps the food warm after you take it out of the oven until you’re ready to serve. Now, in the same pan we’re going to mix up our sauce. Let me grab the ingredients. In our skillet, we’re going to add 4 ounces of cream cheese, a can of green chilies, 8 ounces of sour cream, and then the Jalapeno Cheeseball Mix with the topping. We’re going to mix this together and heat it on low heat until it gets smooth.

Now, once the mixture is smooth, we’re going to pour this over our chicken in the pan. You’ll want to preheat the oven to 350 degrees and we’re going to sprinkle a cup of shredded cheddar cheese on top of that. Now we’re going to bake this for 10 minutes.

So our Cheesy Jalapeno Chicken is ready to serve. I’m going to serve it with our Cheddar Jalapeno Cornbread, that’s another video I made. Cheesy and delicious, your family will love it. And that’s another recipe using the Jalapeno Cheeseball Rada Quick Mix.
