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

Ingredients:

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

Directions:

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.
