An absolutely scrumptious main course chicken that's so easy to put together...just a little tiny bit time consuming to ensure you seal the edges so the ooey-gooey, cheesy stuffing doesn't drip out into your BBQ!  We've never had any complaints about these...only praises,  and I love to make them for company because you can make them all up ahead of time and leave them in the fridge until you're ready to barbeque them and then the mess of preparing the main meal is not an issue with guests visiting.  I got this recipe several years ago from Dan's mother and I'm really not sure where it originally came from, so apologize if I've seized someone's prize recipe!  I also realize this isn't a Weight Watcher's recipe and is full of fat, but, does it count that I had a vegetarian burger tonight?  I promise to be good tomorrow!  It's awful being human!


6oz Goat Cheese
2 Garlic Cloves, minced
1 Green Onion, minced
1 tsp Dry Thyme
1/2 tsp Dry Marjoram
Pinch Cayenne
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.

    Makes 4 Servings
