Herbed Stuffed Chicken Breasts

2012-11-29

Dish up a company-worthy dish that calls for only four ingredients, plus salt and pepper. Choose roasted asparagus as a bright, fresh partner for this main dish

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup (2 ounces) goat cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary
  • 2 ounces bacon, finely chopped
  • 4 (6-ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breasts
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • Cooking spray

Method:

  1. Preheat oven to 400°.
  2. Combine first 3 ingredients in a small bowl. Cut a horizontal slit through thickest portion of each chicken breast half to form a pocket. Stuff about 3 tablespoons cheese mixture into each pocket; close opening with a wooden pick. Sprinkle chicken evenly with salt and pepper.
  3. Heat a large cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add chicken to pan; cook 4 minutes. Turn chicken over; place pan in oven. Bake at 400° for 25 minutes or until chicken is done. Let stand 5 minutes. Discard wooden picks. Cut chicken diagonally into 1/2-inch-thick slices. Serve with pan juices.
  4. Roasted asparagus: Combine 1/4 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, and 1 pound trimmed asparagus on a jelly-roll pan coated with cooking spray; toss gently. Bake at 400° for 10 minutes or until asparagus is crisp-tender. Place asparagus in a large bowl; toss with 1 tablespoon butter and 1 tablespoon chopped fresh chives. Complete the meal with a sliced baguette and a glass of crisp white wine.

    I have found this recipe on the internet for chicken wrapped in bacon but it doesn’t specify what type of bacon goes better – smoked or unsmoked?

    I am having some of my friends over on Saturday night. I have a ton to do all week and am sure I’ll be out straight that day. Does anyone have any suggestions on what I can serve for food? It’s probably going to be 10 or so girls. I need something quick and easy. And it’s two weeks before my wedding, so I’m leaning towards at least SOME healthy foods. I’m looking for both finger foods and something (anything) with a bit more substance.

    Any help would be appreciated….again, I’m limited on time (not to mention cooking skills!) so even some good prepared food from the grocery store that you’d recommend would help. Thanks!
