This is an easy DELICIOUS chicken dinner. I like to serve with rice pilaf (shown) or mashed potatoes and steamed broccoli.

Ingredients

4
boneless, skinless chicken breast
1 pkg
herbed goat cheese
1 c
fresh spinach leaves
2 tsp
oregano, dried
1 tsp
dried basil
salt and pepper to taste
fresh chopped parsley and lime slices for garnish

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 350
2
butterfly the chicken breasts and pound out slightly to thin out the breast (carefully as it's easy to make them too thin) to make baking time even.
3
spread the goat cheese (approx. 2-3 tablespoons) on the inside of each breast.
4
top goat cheese with 1/4 of the spinach leaves
5
roll each breast up and place seam side down in a baking dish.
6
sprinkle herbs, salt and pepper over the top of each roll
7
bake until browned and bubbling (approx. 30-40 minutes depending on your oven)
8
Remove from oven and allow to rest for 10 minutes or so.
9
Once rested, you can either serve as a whole breast "roll" per person, or slice each roll on the bias and serve.
10
Sprinkle with fresh parsley, and garnish with lime slices.
