Ah, goat cheese…
Who else agrees that goat cheese makes everything taste better!? I don’t know if it’s the texture, or that sweet acidity it has to it, but adding goat cheese to something so simple as chicken breast takes this pretty simple-tasting prep into something so spectacular, without needing to add any complicated sauces or seasonings.
Trust me, you’ll be stuffing goat cheese in every meal after you’ve tried this.
Recipe available below!
2 large chicken breasts
140 g goat cheese, split into 4 portions
1 tbsp olive oil
Salt & pepper (to taste)
Preheat your oven to about 350F.
Using a sharp knife, carefully slice chicken breasts horizontally into two, thin equally-sized pieces.
Using a meat tenderizer (or potato masher - if you’re like me and don’t have one), flatten chicken breast pieces until extremely thin (less than 1 cm in height).
Place each portion of goat cheese in the middle of each chicken breast piece and roll up entirely, tucking the ends underneath.
Lay each piece on a lined baking tray and drizzle with olive oil, salt & pepper.
Bake in the oven for about 15-20 minutes per side.
Serve warm, or let cool and place in a storage container for later.
