  1. 1

    Prepare Ingredients and Make Lime Crema

    Quarter potatoes. Stem, seed, remove ribs, and cut red bell pepper into thin strips. Zest and half lime. Juice one half and cut other half into wedges. Peel and halve shallot. Slice thinly.
    In a mixing bowl, combine sour cream, 1 tsp. lime zest, and 1 tsp. lime juice. Set aside.

  2. 2

    Start the Potatoes

    Place potatoes on prepared baking sheet and toss with 1 Tbsp. olive oil and ¼ tsp. salt. Massage oil and seasoning into potatoes. Spread into a single layer and roast in hot oven, 20 minutes. While potatoes roast, cook filling.

  3. 3

    Cook the Filling

    Place a medium non-stick pan over medium heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil. Add red bell pepper and shallot to hot pan. Stir occasionally until tender and lightly charred, 8-12 minutes. Remove from burner.

  4. 4

    Prepare the Chicken

    Pat chicken dry. Cover chicken with plastic wrap and use a heavy object to pound to an even 1/8" thickness. You may also use a gallon bag for easier clean up. Remove plastic wrap and season chicken on both sides with seasoning blend. Divide cheese evenly between chicken breasts and top with filling. Fold chicken over filling, enclosing completely.

  5. 5

    Finish Potatoes and Chicken and Finish Dish

    Carefully, push potatoes to one side of baking sheet and toss with tomato chipotle butter. Baking sheet will be hot! Use a utensil. Place stuffed chicken on empty side. Roast again until chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 18-20 minutes. Rest roasted chicken, 3 minutes. Plate dish as pictured on front of card, topping chicken with lime crema. Squeeze lime wedges over chicken to taste. Bon appétit!
