Spicy {Pepper Jack Cheese Stuffed} Chicken Muffins

Here is a new and healthy way to enjoy ground chicken! I served this with brown rice seasoned with garlic, cumin and mexican saffron. :-)

1lb ground chicken breast
1/2 cup flaxseed meal
1/4 cup egg whites
1 8oz can of natural, no salt added tomato sauce
1 small can chopped green chilis
2 tsp Mrs. Dash Extra Spicy seasoning
3/4 small yellow onion - chopped
1/4 tsp Sea Salt
1/4 tsp Black Pepper
1/3 block (10oz block) of pepper jack cheese

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Spray a muffin tin with non-stick cooking spray. Cut the cheese (ha ha) into 12 even blocks. Combine everything in a bowl except cheese. Fill each muffin cup halfway with chicken mixture. Add a block of cheese in each cup. Add rest of the mixture on top of each each muffin cup. Bake for about 30 minutes or until golden brown on top.

Makes 12 servings.
