Okay, here's my confession - I love chicken breasts. I know they aren't as full of flavor as some other parts of the bird. I also know they have a tendency to be dry. But they're so meaty and delicious if done right! A number of my off-the-top-of-my-head meals include chicken breast (chicken in a "bag" with steamed vegetables, to name just one). So last night when I started thinking of something that would go with the rest of the HUGE Greek salad I had left, I thought of doing something with a chicken breast.
I bought a whole breast (if I'm roasting it, I greatly prefer the breast to have both bone and skin - even if I don't eat the skin...it's all about flavor). I preheated the oven to about 350, and then loosened the skin all over the breast with my fingers. And then I stuffed probably 2 ounces of Mediterranean-herbed Goat cheese under the skin on each side of the breast. A little olive oil, salt & pepper on top, and into the oven for about 45 minutes.
The breast came out juicy, with a crispy skin. And the herbs in the goat cheese added a PUNCH of flavor. The perfect addition to the Greek Salad.
