Great with sour cream.


Ingredients

Are you making this? 
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
2 tablespoons butter; softened
1/2 cup sharp cheddar cheese; shredded
1 tablespoon green onions; minced
2 whole green chilies canned; (I use diced green chilis - which is one whole can)
3/4 cup crushed corn chips
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1 teaspoon chili powder
2 tablespoons melted butter

Original recipe makes 4 Servings

Preparation

Flatten chicken breasts between waxed paper to 1/2 inch thickness

In a small bowl, combine butter, cheese and green onion (add green chilis if using diced vs. whole)

Spread over center of breasts

If using whole green chilis, cut each in half, remove seeds and veins and place half a chili on each breast

Fold each breast into a bundle and secure with a toothpick

On a plate, combine crushed corn chips, oregano and chili powder (note, if you use Chili Flavorerd Fritos, you can skip mixing the spices and chips)

Dip breasts into melted butter and then coat with corn chip mixture

Place in a shallow baking dish

Bake at 375 for 45 minutes

Notes

Use Frito Chili Flavored corn chips and omit the oregano and chili powder.

To avoid using toothpicks to keep the chicken together, prepare up to dredging in butter and corn chip. Instead, wrap tightly in plastic wrap (like a sausage) and refrigerate for several hours. Then unwrap, dredge and bake.
