Goat Cheese-Stuffed Chicken Breasts

  • 4 oz. goat cheese
  • 1/4 c. yogurt
  • 2 tsp. Italian seasonings
  • 2 garlic cloves -- minced
  • 4 chicken breast halves
  • 1 T. olive oil
  • 1 c. tomato sauce -- choose the variety of your choice

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

In a small bowl, mix the goat cheese, yogurt, Italian seasoning and garlic. Place the mixture in a plastic bag. Set aside.

Using a sharp knife cut a pocket into each of the chicken breast halves. Snip one end off of the plastic bag holding the cheese mixture and carefully fill each pocket cavity with the cheese mixture.

Heat the oil in an ovenproof skillet and sauté the chicken breasts on both sides, about 3 minutes per side. Add the tomato sauce and bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes.
