2 oz pepper jack cheese
2 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
1 tsp Mexican or taco seasoning
1 TBSP vegetable oil
Cut the cheese into two 2 ¼ inch by 1 inch by ¾ inch strips. Flatten chicken to ¼ inch thickness.
Place a strip of cheese down the center of each chicken breast.
Fold the chicken over the cheese and secure with toothpicks.
Rub Mexican seasoning over the chicken.
In a large skillet, brown the chicken in oil on all sides.
Transfer to a greased 8 inch baking dish. Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes or until the juice runs clear.
Discard the toothpicks.
