Jalepeno Popper Chicken Breasts

How did I not think of this one? If you love jalepeno poppers, you'll love this chicken dish. It is so simple and only calls for three ingredients. This recipe is also courtesy of the Rachael Ray magazine.

1/4 cup chopped pickled jalepeno chiles
6 oz. room temperature cream cheese
2 skin-on, bone-in split chicken breasts

Mix jalepenos into cream cheese. Spread mixture evenly underneath chicken skin; season with salt and pepper. Bake on parchment-lined baking sheet at 400 degrees until cooked through. 30-35 minutes; crisp skin under broiler. (I didn't need to that final step. The chicken skin was pretty crispy just baking in the 400 degree oven.)
