Chicken Breasts With Goat Cheese and Rosemary

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by lazyme

We love this simple dish. It reminds me of chicken kiev. I have also made this with skinless, boneless chicken breasts and it works well if you cut the cooking time a little. But, I think it's better with the skin to keep it moister. From Bon Appetit.

I'm sorry, but I didn't care for this at all! I followed the recipe exactly. The goat cheese was way too overpowering - you have to really LOVE the flavor to like this recipe, and I guess I just like it ok.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Melt 1 teaspoon butter in heavy small skillet over medium-low heat. Add shallots and rosemary and sauté until shallots are tender, about 4 minutes. Remove from heat. Mix in goat cheese and pepper. Season to taste with salt. Using fingertips, loosen skin of chicken breasts, leaving skin attached on 1 long side. Spread half of cheese filling over meat and under skin of each breast. Pull skin over filling and secure with toothpick. Rub remaining 1 teaspoon butter over skin, dividing equally. (Can be prepared 1 day ahead. Cover and refrigerate.).
  2. Preheat oven to 425°F Arrange chicken on baking sheet. Bake until cooked through, about 25 minutes.
