Heat a frying pan to medium on the stove top. Spray with cooking spray and fry chicken breasts until cooked through. (I used my grill pan.)

Thank you! I've been meaning to try my hand at these forever, because they're my favorite appetizer too.

Spraying a Teflon coated frying pan with sprays will eventually ruin it. Placing a bit of oil and spreading it around with a paper towel will make the pan last longer

You can bake these too, they take about 25 - 35 minutes at 350

My oldest son adores this at Chili's! Thank you for this!

looks like restaurant quality! I'd love to try these!

I really shouldn't read Instructables that look this delicious when I am hungry and have nothing in the fridge... Looks like a fun recipe to do though, great job!
