Remember last week when I told you I adored goat cheese? Well, I couldn't let the rest of the cheese go to waste, so I just HAD to figure out another way to incorporate it into one of our meals. I was sort of inspired by the Jalapeno Popper Topped Chicken I made a few weeks ago - I just used herbs instead of jalapenos :)
Herbed Goat Cheese Topped Grilled Chicken
Created by Jenn's Food Journey
- Serves 2 -
1/4 cup olive oil
1 Tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon Mrs. Dash (original)
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
3 oz goat cheese
1 Tablespoons chives, chopped
1 teaspoon fresh parsley, chopped
salt and pepper to taste
Mix together the olive oil, lemon juice, and Mrs. Dash. Rinse chicken and pat dry. Place in resealable bag and pour in the marinade. Seal and place in refrigerator for 1 hour.
Meanwhile, mix together the goat cheese, chives and parsley. Season with salt and pepper. Cover and place in refrigerator until ready to use.
Preheat grill to 375 degrees F. Clean and oil grill grates. Remove chicken from bag and discard marinade. Place over the fire and grill for 8 minutes. Flip the chicken and grill another 7 minutes. Spoon cheese/herb mixture evenly over each piece of chicken, close grill lid and allow to grill another 2-3 minutes or until the cheese starts to soften. Remove and allow to cool for a few minutes before serving. Enjoy!
