  • ▢1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • ▢1/4 tsp cumin
  • ▢1/4 tsp salt
  • ▢1/4 tsp pepper


  • Heat the oven to 375F.
  • In a medium bowl, mix the cream cheese, garlic powder, cumin, salt and pepper until combined. Then stir in the green chilis and stir until evenly mixed.
  • Lay the chicken breasts flat in a baking dish. Cover the chicken breasts with the green chili mixture. Then top with the monterey jack cheese.
  • Bake on the middle rack for 35-45 minutes or until chicken is cooked through and the juices run clear.
  • Serve hot over sautéed spinach or cauliflower rice. Enjoy!


  • You can cut the chicken in half, chunks, or use chicken tenderloins in lieu of full chicken breasts to make serving easier. Cooking time may be reduced.
  • Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container for 3-4 days in the refrigerator or in the freezer for up to a month.
