Goat Cheese-Stuffed Chicken

This meal was really flavorful and easy. This was the first time that I had worked with fresh mint. I found this recipe at MyRecipes.com. I made some changes to their recipe.

Ingredients:
4 oz goat cheese
1/4 cup breadcrumbs
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint
2 large chicken breasts, slice each in half
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
4 teaspoons olive oil
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper


Start by preheating your broiler. Then, combine the goat cheese, breadcrumbs, mint, and parsley in a small bowl.



In each chicken portion, cut a slit for the pocket. Now, put the goat cheese mixture in each pocket. Roll chicken pieces up and tighten each with a toothpick. Season each piece with the kosher salt.


Heat 1 tablespoon of the olive oil in a skillet on medium heat. Now, brown the chicken on one side. Let it cook for 2 minutes.


The rest of the cooking will be completed in the oven. Please chicken portions on a baking sheet with the uncooked side down. Broil for 8 minutes. Check the chicken with your kitchen thermometer.

The chicken is served here with sauteed spinach, seasoned rice, and a glass of wine.
