  • 1 pounc chicken breasts
  • 2 cups of crushed Paqui Nacho cheese chips
  • 2 ounces cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tablespoons water
  • 1/4 cup Cookwell & Company Queso
  • 1/4 cup hot sauce as needed


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a baking pan with non-stick spray. Using a sharp knife cut a long narrow cut into the chicken breast, this will be to stuff the cheese into the chicken breast. 
  • Cut the chicken conservatively, you will want to cut it only large enough to place the cheese into the chicken. Stuff about 1/2 ounce of cheese into the cut. I like to use block cheese and cut the cheese into small sticks. Season all four chicken breasts with salt and pepper. 
  • Make an egg wash with the two eggs and one tablespoon of water. Dredge the chicken in egg wash, then roll into crushed tortilla chips. Lay the chicken onto the baking sheet. Bake the chicken for about 20 to 25 minutes or until the chicken is fully cooked. Drizzle warm queso on top of the chicken and add as much Yellowbird hot sauce as you desire.
