This is a super easy, quick recipe that is delicious! Make it anytime for yourself, your main squeeze, friends or whoever!!
I think my sister in New York would love this!
YOU WILL NEED:
2 chicken breasts
3 ounces goat cheese
3 tbsp. fresh parsley chopped fine
2 tbsp. pesto (you can buy premade at the grocery store)
Garlic Cheese Sprinkle from Gilroy!! Or garlic powder
Preheat oven to 375
Pound chicken to flatten between 2 pieces of wax paper or plastic wrap. Use a meat tenderizer mallet. In a pinch, use a hammer (I have!). Flatten till uniform width all over.
Spread pesto and goat cheese on one side of chicken. Sprinkle parsley and garlic sprinkle/powder. Grind pepper all over it. You can also sprinkle salt, but I find that it is salty enough with the pesto, goat cheese, etc.
Roll up chicken and secure with string.
Put skillet on stovetop on high heat. I add a little oil so the chicken won’t stick.
Sear chicken on all sides till brown, about 5-7 minutes.
Put ovenproof skillet in oven and cook chicken for 20 minutes, turning chicken once. If the skillet isn’t ovenproof, just transfer chicken to baking dish.
Note: I like to pour a little Italian dressing over the chicken right before it goes in the oven. You can also garnish with some fresh chopped parsley.
This is delish any time of year!!
