Grilling is definitely one of my favorite things about summer! When it’s too hot outside, I don’t want to heat up the kitchen by turning on the stove or the oven, so cooking on the grill is the way to go. These spicy stuffed grilled chicken breasts are a new favorite dinner at our house! They are so savory and flavorful, with a delicious filling made of cheese and peppers. They’re also quick and easy to make, and made with just a few ingredients.

I wanted my chicken to be extra flavorful and tender, so I marinated it quickly in some Kraft Zesty Italian dressing. I then mixed together some Philadelphia cream cheese, Kraft pepper jack cheese, green chilies, and jalapeños to make a delicious spicy filling. If you want the filling to be milder, you could use mild jalapeños and mild green chilies. Then comes the fun part – stuffing the cheese into the chicken!

From there, you’ll grill the chicken for about 8-10 minutes per side, or until cooked through. I served mine with some fresh diced tomatoes and jalapeños on top, which made for a festive and fun presentation. Seriously, don’t they look delicious?

The best part, of course, is that spicy and cheesy filling. Yum! I am so looking forward to a summer full of grilling.
