Playing How To Make Healthy Jalapeño Popper Chicken | Audrey Johns

Spice up — literally — boring chicken breasts with Audrey Johns' healthy Jalapeño Popper Chicken recipe from Lose Weight By Eating: Easy Dinners

"Everything in this book is easy to make and under 500 calories," Audrey says. "I like this chicken with a crisp salad."  

Audrey says this dish can be made mild, medium or hot, depending on how you cut your peppers:  
MILD: Remove all the ribs and seeds from the jalapeño. 
MEDIUM: Remove all the seeds and leave the ribs. 
HOT: Leave it as is ... or add more jalapeño slices to make it really hot.
