Cornmeal crusted chicken with cheddar, green and red peppers

After seeing 2 different stuffed chicken recipes recently, one on elly says opa and one on Healthy Eats and Sinful Treats I really wanted to make some stuffed chicken. I never had before but the recipes sounded so good. I decided that I wanted to use cornmeal, cheese, and red and green peppers.

4 chicken breasts
1/2 cup red pepper
1/2 cup green pepper
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup cornmeal
1 egg, beaten
2 heaping tbsp cilantro (or to taste)
black pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 400. Spray 9x13 baking dish non-stick cooking spray.

Combine cornmeal, cilantro, and black pepper in dish. Dip chicken in the egg and then in the cornmeal mixture.

Place chicken in baking dish. Sprinkle cheese on 1/2 of one breast, add peppers and top with more cheese. Fold chicken over cheese and pepper mixture, secure with toothpick. Repeat with all breasts.

Place in oven and cook for 30-40 min or until done.
