Spicy Grilled Chicken with Goat Cheese Sauce

A week or so ago, I was craving wings.  I do not know what brought it on exactly, but it's a fact.  Unfortunately, I did not have wings on hand and had no ambition to go to the store to get some.  So, what's a girl to do at that point?   Well, this girl, just decided to improvise.  Now, I didn't want buffalo wings... I wanted just a good wing that had been sprinkled with a nice amount of pepper, garlic salt and cayenne.  Simple.  Which actually made improvising that much easier too :)  Now, since I was having "wings", I had to make a sauce... and a goat cheese sauce just sounded like the thing to make. This meal accomplished exactly what I had hoped it would.... it fed my craving for wings and made sure I did not have to make another trip to the grocery store!!

2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
olive oil
garlic salt

cayenne pepper
For the sauce -
1/4 cup mayonnaise
2 Tablespoons goat cheese crumbles
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon red wine vinegar
1 garlic clove, finely minced
1/4 teaspoon dried dill
1/8 teaspoon white pepper
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

Rinse chicken and pat dry with a paper towel.  Drizzle both sides of each piece of chicken with olive oil and season with garlic salt, pepper, and cayenne to taste.  Cover and place in refrigerator for 30 minutes to an hour.

To make the sauce - mix all ingredients together in a bowl.  Taste for seasoning.  Cover and place in refrigerator until ready to use.

Preheat grill to 375 degrees F.  Clean and oil grill grates.  Place chicken directly over the fire and grill for 8-10 minutes per side or until the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees F.  Remove from grill and allow to rest for 3-5 minutes before serving.  Don't forget the sauce!!  Enjoy!

When I started reading, I was just sure you were going to carve the breast into wing shapes. The chicken and sauce both sound very good - it's always good to have your cravings satisfied.

I want wings too. And I have to shop anyways. And I will make gorgonzola sauce 'cause it's what I got.

I have a feeling I would love this chicken even more than wings! The sauce sounds awesome too.

I'm always craving wings. The sauce for this chicken sounds really good. I think by Saturday we might have warm enough temperatures to grill. Wouldn't that be nice??!!

Jenn, that looks so good. Another flavorful little sauce we can whip up with readily available ingredients. Who could ask for more?
