DIRECTIONS

  • Place 1 chicken breast between 2 large pieces of plastic wrap, carefully pound chicken breast with the flat side of a meat tenderizer or rolling pin. Flatten breast to a thickness of 1/2 cm (1/4 inch), taking care not to tear the chicken. Repeat with remaining chicken breasts.
  • Place broccoli in a small glass and add just enough water to cover the florets, microwave for 4 minutes. Drain and chop finely. Stir warm broccoli into goat cheese until well combined.
  • Place 1/4 of the cheese mixture at the base of the first piece of chicken, carefully roll the meat over the cheese, tucking in the sides to enclose the cheese. Use 2-3 toothpicks to secure. Repeat with remaining 3 breasts.
  • In a large sauté pan heat oil over medium-high, brown chicken on all sides, about 7 minutes. Add sweet & sour sauce to the pan along with 1/4 cup (60 mL) water. Cover and simmer until chicken is cooked through, about 12 minutes.
  • Slice chicken and serve with sauce poured over top.
