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 love homemade chicken soup. I just made it myself for the first time about a month ago. And then I ahd some in the freezer that I took out last week to eat while I was sick. It is the best thing when you’re sick.

    I’m one of those people who don’t add the noodles to the soup. 🙂

    Just made chicken soup this week for my sick hubby. I had fresh herbs on hand so the broth was extra tasty. Individual frozen soup is always my favorite brown bag lunch. Hope you feel better!
