Chicken in a Hurry Recipe

I cook meat and vegetables in my microwave all the time, but these stuffed chicken breasts are a stress-free favorite. Filled with chilies and cheese, they’re a cinch to prepare. I like to serve them with sweet-and-sour or duck sauce on top. –Barbara Frasier, Fyffe, Alabama
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Cook: 10 min. YIELD:4 servings


  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (6 ounces each)
  • 3 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 3 tablespoons sharp American cheese spread
  • 2 tablespoons chopped green chilies
  • 2 teaspoons dried minced onion
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1 cup seasoned bread crumbs


  • 1. Flatten chicken to 1/4-in. thickness. In a small bowl, combine the butter, cheese spread, chilies, onion and salt. Spread 2 tablespoons on each chicken breast half; roll up and secure with toothpicks. Place melted butter and bread crumbs in separate shallow bowls. Dip chicken rolls in butter, then coat with crumbs.
  • 2. Place in a greased 8-in. square microwave-safe dish. Cover and microwave on high for 10 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink. Discard toothpicks. Yield: 4 servings.
