    Delicious and easy enough to make anytime, pretty and economical enough to make for guest!

    SO YUMMY, and really easy. I doubled the recipe, and hubby said he could eat 6 more breasts! Not often is he so enthusiastic about dinner. I think I'll tie the chicken next time--the toothpicks were tough to remove.

    This is the most delicious recipe! I search out a recipe for pepper jack chicken after having it at a restaurant but this recipe beat what I ate in restaurant. Can't wait to make for friends but mostly for me!

    Very tasty. I cannot tolerate very spicy food; this is just right. Great recipe.
