Balsamic Chicken with Goat Cheese


Balsamic Chicken with Goat Cheese is a recipe from my friend Bethany Long. Fresh basil, goat cheese and balsamic has to be one of the best combos ever!

Mash together:
1/2 lb. goat cheese
1 garlic clove, minced
1 package fresh basil, minced (dried will not work for this)

3 chicken breasts sliced thin to make 6 thin breasts
salt and pepper

Saute chicken in olive oil over medium heat.
Cook until almost done. Remove from heat and place in baking dish.
Cover with the cheese mixture and place in oven @ 350 until cheese is melted. ~10min

Into the pan the chicken was cooked in, add:
1 c. chicken broth
1/4 c. balsamic vinegar

Cook until reduced to syrupy consistency.
Add 1/2 stick butter (cut into pats)
Remove from heat and swirl until melted.

Pour over chicken and serve with rice, couscous or roasted potatoes.

Do you chop up the basil or leave it in leave form when you mash it in?

YUM! Thank you so much for the GREAT and super easy recipe! I used feta cheese because I already had it, and it tasted great. (I'm a friend of Eileen Short's and she turned me onto your blog...thanks!)
