Goat Cheese Stuffed Chicken with a Roasted Tomato Sauce

While on holidays in my hometown of Maple Ridge BC, I decided to make a home cooked meal for me and my dad. Surprisingly this  meal only cost $14.00 for 2 people (most ingredients were purchased). Before delving into the process, method and other recipe like jargon I have been asked by my dad to report that this was a “DELICIOUS MEAL!!”, and that everyone who sees this will enjoy it thoroughly!

Goat Cheese Stuffed Chicken

Ingredients:

1 small “log” of herbed goat cheese

2 chicken breasts

salt and pepper to taste

Method:

Butterfly your two chicken breasts open. Put in 3 slices of herbed goat cheese in the middle of each chicken breast, and close with toothpicks. Season the outside with Salt and pepper. Bake in the oven at 400 for 30 minutes (or until it is no longer pink)

Roasted Tomato Sauce

Ingredients:

10 (ish) cherry tomatoes

1 tsp olive oil

salt and pepper to taste

1/2 tbsp red wine vinegar

rest of herbed goat cheese (leave 1 1/4 inch slice to garnish)

Method:

Put the cherry tomatoes in a baking dish with olive oil and salt and pepper. Put under the broiler until they begin to pop (approximately 10 minutes). Once the tomatoes have “popped”, but in a frying pan on the stove and add the remaining ingredients. Cook on Medium – Low until the rest of the meal is ready. Stir occasionally.

 

As a side dish to the chicken I had the following:

Brussel Sprout Leaves cooked in Bacon

Ingredients:

1lb of fresh brussel sprouts

5 – 6 slices of deli bacon (not the pre-packaged stuff!, its too salty and too fatty!) – diced

1 medium onion dicd

4 garlic cloves crushed

salt and pepper to taste

1 tupperware full of water with 1/2 lemon work of lemon juice in lemon in it

Method:

Peel the outer leaves of the brussel sprouts and discard. Peel the rest and put into water. If all of the leaves don’t peel slice thinly and put the sprouts into the water. This will stop the sprouts from browning.

While the brussel sprouts are in the water cook the bacon, onions and garlic in a frying pan on medium – high. *Do not cook on high! Your bacon will burn!*

After the bacon has cooked add in the brussel sprouts and cook on medium high and cook until the brussel sprouts are soft (approx 15 minutes).

 

 

Broiled Red and Orange Peppers

Ingredients:

2 peppers (1 red and 1 orange) – big chunks

1/2 tbsp olive oil

salt and pepper to taste

Method:

Mix all together and broil until brown on skin (approximately 10 minutes).

Here’s the finished product!
