Goat Cheese & Sun-Dried Tomato Stuffed Chicken

Delicious chicken breast stuffed with goat cheese and sun-dried tomatoes that's sure to be a hit.



  1. Combine boiling water and tomatoes in a bowl; cover and let stand 30 minutes or until soft. Drain and finely chop.
  2. Heat 1 teaspoon oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium heat.
  3. Add 1/3 cup shallots, sugar, and garlic; cook 4 minutes or until lightly browned, stirring frequently. Spoon into a bowl.
  4. Combine chopped tomatoes, shallot mixture, goat cheese, basil, and 1/4 teaspoon salt, stirring well.
  5. Cut a horizontal slit through thickest portion of each chicken breast half to form a pocket.
  6. Stuff about 2 tablespoons cheese mixture into each pocket. Sprinkle chicken evenly with 1/2 teaspoon salt and black pepper.
  7. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in pan over medium-high heat.
  8. Add chicken; cook 6 minutes on each side or until done.

I didn't care for it too much. I felt it didn't have enough cheese, or the cheese baked away and was heavy on dried tomatoes. Maybe i just don't care enough for strong sun dried tomato flavor. Worth trying.

This was awesome! Hubs loved it as much as I did. I didn't stuff the chix since my cutlets were fairly thing but rather topped it with the mixture and popped it in the oven for 15 min after I'd already browned the chix. Very moist and tasty!!

My whole family loved this. I followed the suggestion of other people and baked it,375 for 35 min. Then I turned on the broiler at the end to brown the top. I also pounded the chicken flat and rolled the filling inside. Some spots were a little thin so I placed some spinach leaves between the chicken and filling to avoid it melting out. Worked beautifully.

I cooked this for my husband and myself. I kind of followed the original, but baked it like Dina4 for 45 minutes - and added the water/oil mixture and 3 carrots (sliced). Definitely a repeater! Thanks for putting this one out there! (Will try MrsTofu's suggestions next time).

I made a double yield of this with some changes. It was awesome. I used extra virgin olive oil spray. I substituted no salt added 1% milk fat cottage cheese for the goat cheese. I added 2 cups of fresh spinach that I wilted while sauteing the onion and garlic. I pounded the chicken breasts flat to 1/2" thickness and put the stuffing on half of the flattened breast and wrapped the breast over the stuffing. (The other commenter was right, no toothpicks needed.) I baked at 350F for 30 minutes which came out perfectly. What I am happiest about was that the difference these changes made is the per serving calories went from 266 to 145.8. :-D

OMG I absolutely loved this recipe! I am pregnant but still watching my weight to make sure I don't gain too much and this recipe is perfect for that. Super healthy, super tasty, and filling!!! I made it with some broccoli and feel so satified which is so important while pregnant.

I tried this yesturday and it was a BIG hit with my hubby. He even said "This could be something we serve when friends come over" :)

This is outstanding...however the cooking time is far less than stated. I use boneless skinless chicken breat, sear in pan and cook at 350 degrees for about 20-25 minutes. In my family a "company dish" means that you could serve it to company when they come for dinner. This is defintely a company dish.

I have been making this for a long time on my own. I use reduced fat goat cheese, mix it with chopped basil, sundried tomatoes, olive oil, salt and pepper. coat the pounded chicken breasts with panko bread crumbs (dip chicken in some 1% milk so it will adhear) put the mixture in the middle, roll. (no toothpicks necessary). I just bake it for about 45 minutes. Easy and I love dishes that i can toss in the oven and forget.

Excellent dish..the only thing was my chicken must have been too thick because it took 45 minutes to cook on the stovetop, although it turned out perfect! will definately make it again!
