Chicken goes with everything!
It's perfect for special occasions or entertaining. But it's just as "at home" on the grill,
or for a casual family dinner. And it gives most dishes a "lighter" feel than beef, ham, or other
meats, making it a perfect fit for Summer!
Chicken Breasts Stuffed with Goat Cheese and Roasted Red Pepper Tapenade
A brightly colored center of green leaf spinach, red roasted pepper, and mild white goat cheese
fills these breasts of chicken and makes an attractive presentation. This filling melts in your
mouth. Serve this chicken hot, at room temperature or chilled.
Try using piquillo peppers for the roasted peppers in this dish — they are wonderful in this recipe.
You may stuff the breasts and freeze them for future use as well. Chilled, sliced breasts become a
beautiful tricolor roulade or roll-up, which may be served as an appetizer.
Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Saute the garlic, shallot, and thyme for
2 minutes, until softened. Add the spinach, and saute for 1 minute longer, until just wilted. Season
with salt and pepper. Remove the skillet from the heat, and let the aromatics cool.
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 2 cloves garlic, minced (1 teaspoon)
- 1 shallot, minced
- 1 teaspoon minced fresh thyme leaves
- 6 cups fresh washed spinach leaves
- Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
- 1/2 cup drained, chopped jarred roasted red peppers
- 3 tablespoons pitted and chopped Kalamata olives
- 1 tablespoon chopped capers
- 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
- 2 boneless skinless whole chicken breasts, cut in half and pounded lightly
- 4 ounces mild goat cheese, at room temperature
- 1 tablespoon olive oil for brushing chicken
- 1/4 cup chopped parsley
Preheat the oven to 375°F. In a small bowl, mix the roasted red peppers with the olives,
capers, and balsamic vinegar.
Place about one-quarter of the spinach mixture in the center of each pounded chicken breast.
Evenly divide the goat cheese among the chicken breasts, placing a small piece over the spinach;
then top with 1 tablespoon of the roasted red peppers.
Fold the top of the breast over the filling to form a package, sealing the bottom of the chicken
packages wherever needed. Place the chicken on a baking pan. Cover with aluminum foil and bake in
the oven for 25 minutes. Uncover, brush the chicken with a little olive oil, and cook an additional
10 minutes, until the chicken is brown.
Place the chicken on a serving platter and sprinkle it with the parsley.
