Honey and Goat Cheese Chicken
By Paula DeenJUMP TO RECIPE
Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 15 minutes
- 4 boneless chicken breasts
- 1 sleeve crushed butter crackers
- 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
- 6 oz cut into 4 equal portions goat cheese
- 3 tablespoons honey
- 3 tablespoons melted butter
Preheat oven to 350 °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 9×13 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.
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.
