C-Recipes: Chicken Breast with Goat Cheese and Sun Dried Tomatoes


I would like to share a popular chicken entrée requested often in my Personal Chef Business.  It’s fairly quick to put together and full of flavor.


Chicken with Goat Cheese and Sun Dried Tomatoes


6-8 oz.

Boneless Chicken Breast – Skin-on



Extra Virgin Olive Oil



Sun Dried Tomatoes, Julienned



Goat Cheese



Fresh Basil Leaves (chiffonade)



Minced Garlic (to taste)



Salt and Pepper to Taste

Serves Two

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees

Chix and Goat Cheese EPlace the chicken breasts on a sheet pan.  Loosen the skin from the meat with your fingers, leaving 1 side attached.  Cut the goat cheese into ½” thick slices and place 1 or 2 slices plus 1/3 of the julienned sun-dried tomatoes and basil leaves under the skin of each chicken breast.


Chix and Goat Cheese G

Pull the skin over as much of the meat as possible so the chicken won’t dry out.  With your fingers,   rub each piece with olive oil, and sprinkle generously with salt and pepper.
