Spicy Jalapeno and Crab Stuffed Chicken

Jalapenos are the most popular chile peppers in the US. This is probably due to the availability and versatility of the chile. Jalapenos have a balanced combination of flavor and heat.

The demand for these have caused breeders to develop a broad range of varieties. You can now get jalapenos with various heat level and sizes. These can be used in salsas, stuffed, or eaten straight with cheeseburgers (my personal favorite).

1 large jalapeno pepper, diced
2 chicken breasts
12 oz. crab meat
10 oz cream cheese
2 Tbsp garlic (you can use less, but we love garlic)
Cajun seasoning
1/2 cup beer


Flatten each thawed chicken breast with a meat tenderizer or other means.

In a small bowl, mix 6 ounces cream cheese with 6 ounces crab meat and preferred Cajun Seasonings. Stir.

Stir in jalapeno peppers. Divide and spoon the cream cheese/crab mixture over the flattened chicken breast. Spread.

Roll each chicken breast into a tight wrap and cover with tinfoil. Bake at 375 F for approximately 35-40 minutes, or until Chicken is done.


Use the remaining cream cheese and crab and mix in a bowl. Add beer and Cajun Seasonings, and stir. Nuke it about 1 minutes, then pour over the top of the finished chicken. Dust with more Cajun Seasonings for taste and color, and serve!
