Large slices of chicken breast are sandwiched with a mixture of goat cheese, lemon juice, tomato and basil, baked and topped with Alfredo sauce and Provolone.

  • Servings: 4


4 Skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
1× 6-oz Goat Cheese
Juice of One Lemon
Handful Fresh Basil, finely chopped
2 Roma Tomatoes, finely chopped
Garlic Salt, to taste
Pepper, to taste
1 jar Sun-dried Tomato Alfredo Sauce
4 Thin Slices Provolone Cheese
Hot, cooked pasta or rice, as desired


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place chicken breasts on cutting board and carefully cut each horizontally into two thin slices, for a total of 8 pieces; set aside. Soften goat cheese and place in a mixing bowl. Add lemon juice, and 3/4ths of the basil to form a paste. Stir in tomatoes. Divide the goat cheese mixture into four portions; spoon one portion onto each of 4 of the slices of chicken. Top with remaining chicken slices. Add garlic salt and pepper to taste.

Spray a baking dish or pan with cooking spray. Bake chicken, uncovered, about 25-30 minutes, until nearly done. Spread some of the Alfredo sauce over chicken; top with Provolone slices. Sprinkle with remaining basil and cook another 10 minutes until done. Serve with pasta, using leftover sauce, or with rice.
