An Old Favorite: Goat Cheese Stuffed Chicken

A Valentine’s day approaches, I’ve been thinking about lovely things I can do for my love…specifically lovely things I can make for dinner.

M is my biggest cooking fan– he likes everything I make…or at least he says he does…His one complaint is that I usually don’t make the same meal twice. I’m so busy trying new recipes, that I sometimes forget about the awesome ones I’ve made in the past. So the other night I decided to go back to an old standby– Goat cheese and sun dried tomato stuffed chicken with a simple spinach salad.  I got this idea from a chicken recipe I found on Mark’s Daily Apple about a year ago–it’s easy, quick and quite delicious! This recipe is definitely one of our favorites!

Goat Cheese and Sundred Tomato Stuffed Chicken

(Adapted from Mark’s Daily Apple)


2 chicken breasts

4 oz goat cheese

~1/4 cup sundried tomatoes

olive oil

1 clove garlic

Firstly, I put the garlic, goat cheese and sundried tomatoes into the food processor with about a tablespoon of olive oil.

I blend them up until they form a smooth paste.

Then, I fillet the chicken breasts,

put a scoop of filling onto each piece of chicken,

roll them up, and secure them with a skewer.

The next step is to brown the chicken in a pan with the seam side down,

and then place on a foil-lined baking sheet and bake in the oven for about 17-20 minutes (or until they are cooked through) at 400 F.

The resulting chicken will be golden brown and delicious!

We paired our chicken with a spinach, dried cranberry, walnut and feta salad topped with a little balsamic vinaigrette.

I’m really loving the spinach right now!

Are you planning anything special for Valentine’s Day? Any special meals or traditions?
