Goat Cheese Stuffed Chicken

We had some friends from college in town and I wanted to make something to knock their socks off. I made my bruschetta for an appetizer and followed with this salad and the goat cheese stuffed chicken. Everyone loved it. We’ll definitely be making this again.

Goat Cheese Stuffed Chicken (adjusted, original recipe from Pleasure Cooker) – serves 4
4 chicken breasts, trimmed
1 1/2 cup fresh spinach, chopped
1/2 cup sun-dried tomatoes, chopped
6 oz herbed goat cheese
thyme
salt
pepper

Preheat oven to 350. Mix the spinach, sun-dried tomatoes, and goat cheese.

Cut a pocket in the chicken and stuff with cheese mixture. Sprinkle salt, pepper, and thyme on one side of chicken. Lay chicken seasoned side down, in an oven-proof skillet with a tablespoon of olive oil heated on medium-high.

Cook 5 minutes on each side (when you flip, season other side) until browned. Finish chicken in oven, about 20 minutes or until cooked through.

    I covet mushroom and asparagus recipes. I’m the only one in my family who will eat them- le sigh.
    This looks really good and I love pasta and shrimp too, I so could have helped you polish this off.

    Others given a capital letter in later printings were copyrighted names such as Kleenex,
    which appeared as kleenex in the first printing (the reason it was in the
    dictionary, of course, was that it had changed in usage from denoting a brand of
    tissue to being a synonym for tissue), but was thereafter capitalized under
    threat of lawsuit.
