Pecan Goat Cheese Stuffed Chicken

Last night, I made dinner!  and I photographed it!  and now I am about to blog about it!  It feels like it has been awhile.

I am in the mode where I want to use up everything in the house before I go grocery shopping again.  I spent too much money on groceries because I tend to always crave something I dont have on hand.  In the bowl above, I combined:
  • Goat Cheese
  • Chopped Pecans
  • Chopped Parsley
  • Thyme
  • Garlic Powder
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 1 Tablespoon Melted Butter
Then, I spread the goat cheese mixture on Thinly Sliced Boneless Chicken Breasts and rolled them up.  I kept them from falling apart by using Skewers that I cut in half.

Rub the chicken with Extra Virgin Olive Oil and spinkle with Salt and Pepper before popping into the oven at 350 degrees.  How long?  Until they look done, so maybe about 15-20 mins.

Meanwhile, I needed an appetizer.  I used the Nature's Pride 100% Whole Wheat Bread that Foodbuzz was kind enough to send me to sample.


Then, I grabbed the Garlic Spread that Kevin had picked up from DiPasquales last week.

Toast up the bread, spread with garlic spread, top with tomato sauce and grated romano.  Throw back in the toaster oven and Voila...

You have yourself a pretty tasty appetizer.  And the bread?  It ranks up there for wheat bread.  I loved the way it toasted - crispy on the edges and soft in the middle.  Kevin was busy chopping veggies for our side dishes with Oscar close by.

Oscar knows who the softy is...AND who makes more of a mess drops more food on the floor! ;)

Looks like the chicken is done.

It turned out great.  The only thing that would have made it even better is if it was wrapped in Turkey Bacon.  Kevin made two side dishes in an effort to use up C.S.A. veggies.  Steamed brussels sprouts in an apple cider vinegar/garlic sauce and...

Sauteed zucchini, yellow squash, and onions topped with asiago cheese.

Yummm.

This saturday is the Baltimore Half Marathon and I am excited about running.  My Half Marathon PR is 2:04 and while I havent been training for "speed" (my speed may be someone else's easy/slow pace), I would love to beat my time.  But, I will be happy with anything under 2:10.

Dont forget to vote for me in the Baltimore Mobbies contest - it ends tomorrow!

Good luck on your 1/2 marathon! I wish I could say I was running it but alas, I'll be manning a marathon water stop instead.
