Have you ever bitten into a perfectly cooked jalapeno popper? If you have, you know the sheer perfection that comes with that incredible punch of flavor, that surprising hit of heat, the crunchy exterior, and the cool cream cheese that comes in to smooth everything out. This is a wonderfully simple dish in theory, although adapting this flavor and texture combination for the dinner table is not so easy. Luckily, now you can harness everything that you love about perfect jalapeno poppers from the comfort of your kitchen with this stand-out recipe for jalapeno popper chicken casserole.
This yummy casserole uses home-breaded chicken to provide you with crunchy splendor with every bite, while a quick and easy cream cheese, sour cream, crispy bacon and jalapeno sauce packs a mean punch. This is also a great casserole to enjoy with the little ones, however as you have probably guessed, we would recommend cutting down on the jalapenos when preparing this dish for the kiddos. Depending on their age and taste preferences, of course, one or two chopped jalapenos would be more than enough for them. (Remember, the cream cheese and sour cream does wonders to neutralize the heat).
Pro tip: For a quicker road to creating this amazing dish, feel free to purchase pre-breaded chicken cutlets to use in this recipe. Alternatively, you can also opt to buy extra chicken to bread and fry, which you can then store in your freezer for later use.
