Yum Day 4

Today's entry comes from Ina Garten, my favorite Barefoot person, but not my favorite Tessa. :)

I make this when I have time for it to cook, but NO time to prepare. It's about the easiest main dish, but it looks fancy and tastes fantastic.

Chicken Breasts with Goat Cheese and Basil

You need bone-in, skin-on chicken boobs for this one. Separate the skin from the flesh and put slices of goat cheese and one or two basil leaves in there (I've also used crumbled feta, either plain or flavored, with even better results). Rub olive oil over the whole boob, sprinkle with salt and fresh ground pepper, and roast at 400 for about 35-40 min (keep checking it).

Serve with some sort of starch (I've done garlic mashed potatoes, rosemary potato wedges, wild rice, and brown rice) and lots of veggies. Beautiful and easy!

Allison, I love that you don't miss out on an opportunity to use the word "boobs." It makes me miss you. :) (BFFs forever!)

I'm into stitches. said...

She said, "Rub on boob."

Heh. That's one thing I need no encouragement nor directions for.

Yummmmm....I logged back on specifically for this recipe. Which of the 5 Barefoot books is this in? And why haven't I made it yet?

Baked goods are only half the story...
