Chicken Breasts with Goat Cheese and Rosemary

We love this simple dish. It reminds me of Chicken Kiev. I have also made this with skinless, boneless chicken breasts and it works well if you cut the cooking time a little. We like it better with the skin that tends to keep it moister. From Bon Appetit.
