Chicken with Goat Cheese and Sundried Tomato Sauce

January 3, 2009 at 10:18 am 2 comments

Goat cheese and sundried tomatoes are a perfect savory combination. In fact, any type of cheese with sundried tomatoes is a winner in my book. I happened to have both of these things in my fridge one night and was looking for something to make. I had heard wonderful things about this recipe so I decided to give it a go. I was pretty certain it would live up to its expectations and boy did it! Incidentially, the sauce goes perfectly over mashed potatoes. Unfortunately, this dish didn’t photograph well (and I probably shouldn’t have used my blue plates) so you’ll just have to believe me when I say how wonderful it is.


Chicken with Goat Cheese and Sundried Tomato Sauce
2 chicken breast halves, sliced in half lengthwise
1 tbsp olive oil
1/4 cup white wine
1/2 cup chicken broth
2 Tbsp sundried tomatoes, chopped and drained, if they are oil-packed
2 ounces herbed goat cheese (if you have plain you may want to saute a clove of garlic and add a fresh herb like basil to the sauce)
salt and pepper

Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper. heat a skillet over medium-high heat and add oil. When the oil is hot, add chicken breasts. Cook for 4-6 minutes per side or until chicken is cooked through. Set aside to keep warm.

In the same skillet, add wine. Cook over medium-high heat until reduced by half, making sure to scrape up brown bits from the chicken. Add chicken broth and reduce by half. Add in sundried tomatoes and heat through. Remove skillet from the heat and stir in the goat cheese. Serve immediately.
