– chicken breast – bell peppers – fajita seasoning – cream cheese – onions
Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the sliced onions then the sliced bell peppers, kosher salt and garlic powder.
Mix together cream cheese and half of the fajita seasoning then the sharp cheddar cheese. Stir until well combined.
Slowly run the knife through the chicken from top to bottom, being careful not to cut all the way through the back of the breast.
Spread 2-3 tablespoons of cheese mixture inside each chicken breast. Top the cheese with cooked onions and peppers, and press the chicken breast closed. Sprinkle the chicken breasts with the remaining fajita seasoning.
Drizzle the remaining olive oil in a large baking pan. Arrange the chicken breasts in the baking pan in a single layer, not overlapping. Bake the chicken in the preheated oven for 30-45 minutes.
