I’ve wanted to make this chicken for a while, but just assumed it would not be good. I can’t believe how easy it is to make and the amount of flavor it has! We really liked this.
You can make this as easy or as complicated as you want. I found this on myrecipes.com, but I simplified it. I cannot make homemade pimento cheese as good as Palmetto Cheese. I always buy my pimento cheese at Costco and today I used it as the filling. So here’s the easy way and use the link if you want a more homemade approach. 🙂
Servings for two people:
- two chicken breasts (cut until it basically looks like a butterfly- don’t cut into two parts)
- Your favorite pimento cheese
Season the chicken with season salt (or your favorite seasoning). Open up the chicken and place 2-3 tablespoons on one side. Don’t worry about measuring, just put enough that you can still fold one side on top of the other without it seeping out. Flatten out the pimento cheese and fold the side without cheese over the top. Secure with a toothpick.
Brown for about 2-3 minutes on each side. Place on a cookie sheet (I always put aluminum foil down first). Bake on 350 until it’s 165 degrees/ juices run clear, about 20-30 minutes depending on the thickness of the chicken. Enjoy!!
