Chicken Breasts with Jalapeño Cheese Sauce Recipe

Skillet seared chicken breasts are covered in a jalapeño cheddar sauce for an easy, flavorful dinner that’s great for a weeknight or for company!

Serves: 4 servings


  • 4 teaspoons olive oil, divided
  • 4 (5-6 oz.) boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 3/4 teaspoon chili powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 cup onion, finely diced
  • 3 medium jalapeños, seeds and membranes removed, finely diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup low-sodium chicken broth
  • 4 oz. cream cheese (I use 1/3 less fat)
  • 1 heaping cup shredded cheddar cheese


  1. Heat 2 teaspoons of the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Meanwhile, season chicken breasts with the salt, pepper, chili powder and cumin. Add to pan and sear for 4 minutes on each side, until golden brown.
  2. Remove chicken breasts from the skillet to a plate and cover with aluminum foil to keep warm. (They will finish cooking later.)
