Ingredients

  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts 
  • 1 tbsp ranch seasoning blend
  • ½ tsp paprika 
  • ½ tsp ground cumin 
  • 2 oz cheddar cheese, cut into 8 thin slices
  • 1 red jalapeño or serrano pepper, thinly sliced 
  • 1 green jalapeño, thinly sliced 
  • 1 ½ cups corn kernels, thawed if frozen
  • 2 tbsp salted butter 
  • 1 tbsp chopped parsley 

Directions

1) Pat 2 chicken breasts dry with paper towels. Cut 4 deep slits into each chicken breast, about 1 inch apart, being careful not to slice all the way through. Season the chicken with 1 tbsp ranch seasoning, ½ tsp paprika, and ½ tsp cumin, rubbing the seasoning into each of the slits. 

2) Stuff each of the 8 slits with 1 slice of cheddar cheese, 1 slice of red jalapeño, and 1 slice of green jalapeño.

3) Spread 1 ½ cups corn kernels out in an even layer in a Suvie pan. Top corn with 2 tbsp salted butter and season with a pinch of black pepper. Top corn with stuffed chicken breasts and place in the top zone of your Suvie. Input settings and cook now.
