I didn't know what to make last night so...

Last night was one of those nights I could have stared at cookbooks and recipes for hours and still not found a thing to cook.  After finally getting fed up with looking and trying to find something I went into the kitchen and started browsing to see what all I had.  After looking around for a while I had finally and idea pop into my head.  The outcome of it was pretty tasty, if you ask me!  It's also another one of those recipes that is very quick and is a great week night meal.  

No name-cilantro chicken. (I'll update when I think of a name...feel free to leave ideas in my comments)

Ingredients:

2 Chicken breast

2 Ounces cream cheese

2 Tablespoons cilantro, roughly chopped

Salt and pepper, to taste

1 1/2 Teaspoon Cayenne Pepper

2 Tablespoons bread crumbs

Extra Virgin Olive Oil, for drizzling

1 Tablespoon Lime juice

 

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 F.

Take the 2 ounces of cream cheese and soften, add lime juice, and cilantro and mix together.  Add a dash of cayenne pepper and mix well. 

Butterfly the chicken breast, sprinkle some salt and pepper and then spread cream cheese mixture onto the chicken.  Once it's evenly spread fold chicken back together, sprinkle top with salt, pepper, cayenne pepper and bread crumbs.  Place the chicken on a pan and drizzle with olive oil. 

Place in oven and cook for about 25-30 minutes. 

Serve over a bed of rice.
