Cheese and Jalapeno Smothered Chicken

I love this served over a bed of salsa flavored rice ;-)


  • 3 Tbsp. soy sauce
  • 1 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic salt
  • Ad
  • 2 boneless skinless chicken thighs, lightly pounded
  • 1/2 cup bell peppers, diced
  • 1/4 cup red onion, chopped
  • 1 "heaping" Tbsp. jalapeno, finely chopped, plus 1 tsp. for garnish
  • 2 tsp. plus 1 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 3/4 cup shredded Pepper Jack cheese
  • Rice


Combine the soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce and garlic salt well in a shallow dish; add the chicken, turn chicken to coat and set aside for about 15 minutes.

Drain and discard marinade and cook the chicken in 2 teaspoons of the oil over medium heat for 4 to 5 minutes on each side or until the juices run clear.

Meanwhile, saute the bell peppers, onion and heaping tablespoon of jalapeno in the remaining oil in another skillet until just tender and set aside.

When chicken is done spoon the vegetable mixture over each chicken thigh, sprinkle with cheese, cover and cook until cheese is melted, about 1 to 2 minutes. Place on plates over a bed of rice, garnish with remaining jalapeno and serve.
