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

1 tsp
dried basil

fresh chopped parsley and lime slices for garnish

4top goat cheese with 1/4 of the spinach leaves
5roll each breast up and place seam side down in a baking dish.
6sprinkle herbs, salt and pepper over the top of each roll
7bake until browned and bubbling (approx. 30-40 minutes depending on your oven)
8Remove from oven and allow to rest for 10 minutes or so.
9Once rested, you can either serve as a whole breast "roll" per person, or slice each roll on the bias and serve.
10Sprinkle with fresh parsley, and garnish with lime slices.
