Did you know that pounding the chicken to an even thickness and then broiling it makes the chicken cook really fast? You can have this cheesy chicken dish ready in a flash. And we're all for that! We call it Pepper Jack Chicken 'cause the cheese gives it a little kick, but you can use whatever cheese you like best!

What You'll Need

  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise, divided
  • 3/4 cup (3 ounces) shredded Monterey Jack cheese with peppers
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 3 tablespoons sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped pickled jalapeno peppers
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 6 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to Broil. Combine 3 tablespoons mayonnaise, cheese, and next 4 ingredients, stirring well. Set aside.
  2. Place chicken between 2 sheets of heavy-duty plastic wrap, and flatten to 1/4-inch thickness, using a meat mallet or rolling pin. Brush both sides of chicken lightly with remaining 1 tablespoon mayonnaise; place chicken on lightly greased rack in a broiler pan.
  3. Broil 5-1/2 inches from heat 5 minutes on each side. Spread cheese mixture evenly over chicken; broil 5 more minutes or until mixture is browned.
