Mariachi Chicken Bundles

6 chicken breast – flattened

¼ cup diced red peppers, or a mix of colors
¼ cup minced green onion
2 tablespoons chopped black olives

½ cup cream cheese – room temperature
1 cup salsa

Preheat oven to 350 deg.

In a small bowl, mix the veggies. In a separate bowl, stir cream cheese and salsa until combined (I like to zap the cream cheese in the microwave to make this quicker).

Place the flattened chicken breast in your hand, shiny side down (back side up). Place a tablespoon or two of veggies in center. Fold up chicken breast and place seam side down in greased baking dish. After placing all bundles in the pan, spread cream cheese salsa mix over the top. Sprinkle with paprika.

Bake, covered, for 1 hour or until chicken is cooked through,(internal temperature is 170 deg).

I am from Georgia. Grew up in Atlanta, but was born in Baxley, lived in Valdosta, Lakeland, Albany, Blakely, Glennville... well, my husband is a Pastor, so we have moved a good bit. South Georgia is HOME... We probably have lots of friends in common...
Thanks for stopping by!
