Habanero Pizza Stuffed Chicken Breasts

We've combined all the flavors of pizza, minus the crust, and incorporated it into a chicken breast stuffing. Quite delicious! The habanero peppers offer the perfect spicy kick and of course flavor. Try a light breading on this recipe well for a fun variation.

Ingredients

  • 2 chicken breasts
  • 4 ounces shredded mozzarella
  • 2 ounces pepperoni slices, chopped
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, chopped
  • 1 habanero pepper, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, roasted
  • 2 tablespoons fresh basil, chopped + 1 tablespoon dried basil
  • Salt to taste
  • Pizza sauce for serving

Cooking Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine mozzarella, pepperoni, jalapeno, habanero, garlic, 2 tablespoons fresh basil and a pinch of salt. Mix well.
  3. Heat a sauté pan to medium heat.
  4. Season each chicken breast with salt and dried basil.
  5. Sear each chicken breast about 2 minutes per side. Remove from heat and cool enough to handle with your hands.
