Chicken Breasts With Goat Cheese

in chicken, FOOD, Goat Cheese


For medical reasons, I am on a low-carbohydrate diet again. I don’t mind it at all, although I do miss certain things. Eventually, I’ll be able to indulge (occasionally) in some of the more decadent foods I love. If anyone has good low-carb recipes you are willing to share with me, please send them!

One of my students brought me a little container of fresh goat cheese seasoned with basil pesto, garlic and chile. Because it has only 0.3 gm of carb per 1 ounce, I could hardly wait to try it on something.

What I came up with is simple enough. I sautéed two large chicken tenders in olive oil. Just before serving, I topped them with the seasoned goat cheese and a line of pesto for color contrast. Along with a salad, this was a perfect and delicious low-carb dinner for one.

A hui hou!

Looks and sounds delicious, Lucy

Another chicken dish you can try is flatten a chicken breast and stuff with the herbed and seasoned goat cheese and chopped fresh asparagus spears – sort of like a take on Chicken Cordon Bleu w/o the butter and ham 😉

That does sound good! I’m allowed very few carbs at this point, so anything like that sounds good. I can eat any kind of meat, plus butter, ham, cheese, etc. I do tend to get tired of chicken sometimes. Thank you!!
