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

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’d never heard of the “Hassleback” method to cooking potatoes. Does it have anything to do with “the Hoff”? 🙂

    I made this tonight and it was delish! I used toasted walnuts in the pesto though bc that’s what I had on hand. It all worked!
