Chicken with a Cheese Twist

After a long day at work today I wanted to make something that was quick, easy, and oh so tasty to whip up. It was time to et creative with plain Jane chicken tenderloins. This was a huge hit tonight and took no time at all. I used the time I saved to make a tasty beverage instead!
Chicken with a Cheese Twist

6 chicken tenderloin
2 TB Blue Cheese Dressing
½ c crumbled feta cheese
1 TB Pesto
1 roasted red pepper chopped
ham deli slices (optional)
salt/pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 350.

In a medium sized mixing bowl combine blue cheese, feta, and pesto. Dip each chicken tenderloin into the cheese mixture, wrap with ham if you desire, salt/pepper to taste. Place a few slices of the chopped roasted red pepper on top of the chicken.

Bake for 30-35 minutes or until cooked through and you cannot see any pink.

*The picture on top was made with ham, but the picture to the right has none.

  1. i tried this one over the weekend, and it turned out pretty good. i used prosciutto, and i thought the recipe said blue cheese (missed the "dressing" part), but it was still delish, and the mister liked it, too. he even commandeered the leftovers for lunch the next day.
