Taco Stuffed Chicken is a delicious and unique easy weeknight dinner! Tender, juicy chicken breasts are stuffed with a boldly seasoned cream cheese mixture that will really make your mouth water. Make this family favorite for dinner tonight!
On the thick side of the chicken breast, cut a long pocket, as deep as possible without cutting through to the other side. Season each side of the chicken with salt, pepper, and 1 teaspoon of taco seasoning.
In a bowl, stir together 1 cup Mexican cheese, cream cheese, green chilis, and 1 tablespoon taco seasoning. Stuff each chicken breast with ¼ of this mixture.
Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Carefully add each chicken breast to the pan and sear until both sides are golden brown, about 5-6 minutes per side.
Remove from the heat, spoon the salsa over the chicken and top with cheese. Bake for 10-12 minutes until the cheese is melted and the chicken is cooked through.
Feel free to substitute any cheese you like!
You can secure the stuffed chicken breasts together with toothpicks if desired.
