  • 2 boneless chicken breasts, halved
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • kosher salt
  • black pepper
  • 12 oz cherry tomatoes
  • 2 shallots, sliced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced, sliced or roughly chopped
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil, divided
  • ½ teaspoon dry Italian seasoning
  • 4 ounce goat cheese log

Optional Garnish

  • fresh basil or parsley


  • Preheat oven to 375 F.
    Heat an oven-safe skillet over medium-heat. While pan is heating, season the chicken liberally with salt, pepper and garlic powder. When pan is hot, add 1 T olive oil and then the chicken. Cook the chicken, just until browned, about 3-4 minutes and then turn over and brown the other side.
  • Remove pan from heat and add tomatoes, garlic and shallots. Nestle the goat cheese in the center of the pan. Season the tomatoes with salt, pepper and the Italian seasoning. Drizzle the remaining oil over everything. Place in oven for 35 minutes.
  • After 35 minutes, remove from oven, using a fork, mash the tomatoes and goat cheese together to form a sauce.
  • Spoon the sauce over chicken and serve. If desired, serve over pasta or polenta. Garnish with fresh torn basil or parsley.
