Chicken Stuffed with Goat Cheese and Herbs

Ingredients

2 Oz. Of goat cheese
2 oil packed sun dried tomatoes, rinsed under water, patted dry and finery chopped
1 scallion, minced
1 Tbsp. fresh basil chopped
2 tsp. Chopped thyme
¼ cup breadcrumbs
4 skinless, boneless chicken beasts
4 tsp. Light mayonnaise

Directions

Preheat your oven to 425. Spray a baking pan with oil and set aside. Combine the goat cheese, sun dried tomatoes, scallion, basil and thyme in a small bowl. Mix well with a fork. Cut a pocket into the side of each chicken breast. Place a quarter of the goat cheese mixture into each chicken breast. Press the pocket closed with a fork. Lightly brush the top of each chicken breast with the mayonnaise. Dip the chicken into the bread crumbs one piece at a time, coated side down into the breadcrumbs. Transfer coated side up to your baking pan. Spray the tops of the chicken lightly with nonstick spray. Bake until the chicken is cooked through and the crust is golden, about 30 minutes.

Serve with spinach.

Hi this is Kristina visiting from Full Plate Thursday. Yum! I love goat cheese and chicken so this combination is a win for me. Spinach is great but I bet it would also be good served with a side of kale fried in ghee.
