I think I made the best chicken I've ever made last week. I mean, I can't even tell you how good it was. I had my fingers INSIDE of chicken (and if you know me I usually won't even Touch raw chicken) and I can't wait to do it again- that's how good it was.
I saw the recipe title "Feta and sun dried tomato stuffed chicken" on a magazine cover recently and couldn't stop thinking about it so I decided I had to make something similar! Except I decided to try goat cheese instead of feta because goat cheese is my favorite!
sun dried tomato
extra virgin olive oil
First, chop up about 1/4 of a cup of sun dried tomatoes and 1 cup of spinach
In a medium size bowl, mix in the sun dried tomatoes, the spinach and 1/2 a packet of goat cheese. I used a fork to smash it all together. Add a little bit of black pepper.
Next, take your chicken breasts and cut a slit, or a 'pocket' into the side, make sure you don't cut all the way through!
Then either take a spoon or use your hands (I used my bare hands) and shove the goat cheese mixture into the slit.
Should look something like this when you are done.
Put a couple of tablespoons of olive oil in a pan, and fry the chicken on medium heat for 3-4 minutes, then flip. Carefully so all the cheese doesn't come out!
After both sides look done (the middle will won't be) I put them in an oven safe dish and baked at 350 till they were all the way done (about 12-15 minutes) and that's it!
I served it with wild rice and Everyone went back for seconds!
