Ingredients

  • 4 large chicken breasts boneless and skinless, sliced in half horizontally then pounded out to 1/4" thickness
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 1/2 cup shredded pepper jack cheese divided
  • 4 ounces mushrooms sliced
  • 1/2 red bell pepper diced
  • 1/2 green bell pepper diced
  • 1/4 sweet onion diced
  • 4 teaspoons or more, to taste Cajun seasoning
  • 4 tablespoons butter divided

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 F.
  • Spray a 9" x 13" baking dish with non-stick spray.
  • Heat oil in large skillet.
  • Divide half of the cheese between the chicken breasts, placing in the middle as you would prepare a burrito.
  • Divide mushrooms, peppers and onions between the breasts in the same fashion.
  • Top with the remaining cheese.
  • Roll chicken up and secure with toothpicks. Try to push the toothpicks in far enough that they barely stick out.
  • Season outsides of rolled up chicken with the Cajun seasoning.
  • Working in batches, brown the chicken on all sides in the skillet. Remove to the baking dish, seam side up.
  • Top each breast with a tablespoon of the butter then transfer baking dish to the oven and bake for 20-30 minutes or until the chicken is done.
  • Remove toothpicks, slice and serve.
