Preheat your oven to 325F and spray your casserole dish with cooking spray.
Carefully slice your chicken breasts in the middle, do not cut all the way through, you will want it to open like a book.
Stuff the inside each chicken breast with 1/2 tsp of cream cheese, cheese, and diced jalapeños (you will want to reserve some of the shredded cheese and jalapeños for the top of the chicken)
In your casserole dish, add your rice and water. Stir until combined. Place your chicken breasts on top of the rice and sprinkle some cheese and diced jalapeños on top.
Cover with foil and bake for 35 minutes. Uncover and bake for another 25 minutes. Fluff rice. If your rice is still a little undercooked, bake for another 10 minutes. Remove from oven and squeeze lime juice over the chicken.
