Have I mentioned I love pasta? Oh, and goat cheese...Mmmmm. And sun dried tomatoes...
This winning combo is found in a creation called Chicken Bryan, served at the restaurant Carrabbas restaurant.
Here is the list of ingredients to prepare 6 chicken breasts/servings.
* 1 tablespoon minced garlic
* 1 tablespoon minced yellow onion
* 2 tablespoons butter
* 1/2 cup dry white wine
* 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
* 2/3 cup cold butter, sliced
* 1 1/2 cups chopped sun-dried tomatoes
* 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
* 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
* 1/2 teaspoon white pepper
* 6 boneless skinless chicken breast halves
* extra virgin olive oil, for brushing
* 1/2 teaspoon salt
* 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
* 8 ounces caprino goat cheese (I used Ile de France, room temperature
Directions (I have a question for you at the end of the post)
Saute garlic and onion in 2 Tbs. butter in a large skillet over medium heat until tender.
Stir wine and lemon juice into skillet, increase heat to medium high, and simmer to reduce by half.
I love the Nigella lemon reamer..perfect for getting the juice and pulp out with minimal mess........
Reduce heat to low and stir in cold butter, one slice at a time.
Stir in tomatoes, basil, kosher salt, and white pepper; remove from heat; set aside.
(Note: What I did was just cook two of the breasts and used my grill pan on the stove. Before we even get into how that all went, I will say the end result would have been better if you grilled the chicken over a charcoal fire. If there wasn’t so much rain, that is what we would have done.)
Now I DID make the full amount of sauce for the topping and just stowed the remainder in the fridge.
Back to the recipe.....Brush chicken breasts with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and black pepper.
Grill chicken over hot coals 15-20 minutes, or until cooked through. As I mentioned, the never ending rain kept us from grilling so I used the grill pan on the stove top.
A couple of minutes before chicken is done, place equal amounts of cheese on each breast. Spoon prepared sun-dried tomato sauce over chicken.
This was so good. I smeared the goat cheese on those cooked breasts - not a dab, a smear.
This is in my top five for recipes I'd love to have again and again this coming year. Never made it before this evening but...definitely a keeper.
Tell me which recipes you have made that you'd consider for your top five. Really...I'd love to know. Feel free to link to your page with some of your best meals.
