6oz Goat Cheese
2 Garlic Cloves, minced
1 Green Onion, minced
1 tsp Dry Thyme
1/2 tsp Dry Marjoram
4 Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts
2 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1/2 tsp each ground cumin/paprika
1/4 tsp each salt/pepper
In a small bowl, combine goat cheese, garlic, green onion, thyme, marjoram and cayenne until smooth. Set aside.
Trim any fat from chicken. With knife held horizontally and starting at thinner side, cut chicken in half "almost" but not all the way through. Open like a book. Spread one side of each with cheese mixture. I use a heaping regular big spoonful, depending on the size of the breast. Fold uncovered side over and secure edge with toothpicks. Be sure to make sure it's fairly tightly sealed or the cheese will ooze out on the bbq....use 2-3 toothpicks as needed.
In a small dish or measuring cup, whisk together oil, cumin, paprika, salt & pepper. Brush all over chicken (both sides).
Place on greased grill over med-high heat. Close lid and grill, turning once, until golden brown and chicken is no longer pink inside. Approx. 8 minutes per side.
