Honey and Goat Cheese Chicken

By Hillary Granum

Ingredients:
4 chicken breasts, boneless
1 sleeve butter crackers, crushed
1 teaspoon crushed red pepper
1 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon black pepper
6 oz. goat cheese, cut into 4 equal portions
3 tablespoon honey
3 tablespoon butter, melted
Non-stick cooking spray

Directions:
Pre heat oven to 350º F.

Make a slit in the side of each chicken breast, being very careful not to go through the other side. In a medium bowl, add crushed crackers, red pepper, salt and pepper. Spray the bottom of a 9x13 baking dish with non-stick cooking spray. Stuff each chicken breast with equal amounts of goat cheese and place in baking dish. Press cracker mixture on top of each breast, coating evenly. Spray the top of each breast with non-stick cooking spray. In a small bowl, stir together butter and honey. Bake chicken breast for 10 minutes. Finally, spoon honey butter over chicken and return to oven for 25 minutes. 

Servings: 4
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes
Difficulty: Easy

Notes from the Paula Deen Test Kitchen:  Great family night dinner. Make sure the knife you use to make the slits in the chicken breasts is very sharp.
