Goat cheese stuffed chicken breast

Chicken can get boring. I am usually eating chicken every day for lunch so I don’t always have chicken at dinner time, but this recipe is quite far from boring! Who doesn’t love goat cheese, first of all? I don’t do a lot of dairy at all – and if I do, I prefer a goat milk cheese since it’s easier for humans to digest and good for lactose-intolerant people.

Ingredients:

  • 4 chicken breasts, pounded flat
  • 4-5 ounces goat cheese
  • 1/2 cup chopped green onion
  • 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 2 tsp oregano
  • Pink or sea salt and black pepper + additional for the chicken breasts

Pre-heat your oven to 400 degrees.

Prep your chicken breasts – pound them flat and sprinkle with pink salt and black pepper. Then combine the goat cheese with the green onions and remaining spices in a bowl and mix well. Stuff 1/4 of the mixture into each chicken breast and fold over, securing with a few toothpicks. Place chicken in a glass baking dish and bake for 45 minutes – one hour, until juices run clear.

Enjoy! Depending on the size of the chicken breast, one could serve 1 person or 2 people. So this could be anywhere between 4-6 servings, give or take.
