Chicken Bryan

This post has been linked to Eat at Home.

I may have mentioned before my love of Italian food. It is my favorite cuisine! One of my favorite places to eat Italian food is Carrabba's Italian Grill. Yes, its a chain, they are all over the country. Oddly enough, I noticed that there are none in California. If you are a Californian and find yourself venturing to another state and run across Carrabba's, I highly recommend it!

There is a dish there called "Chicken Bryan." Years ago my oldest son ordered it and liked it enough to try a copy cat recipe of it. I thought he did a sensational job of recreating it! So, here is his version of this delicious entree.

Ready for the grill. The chicken prepared with olive oil, herbs, salt and pepper.

Grilling to perfection!

Taken off the grill and spreading with goat cheese.

Sun-dried tomatoes added, drizzling with butter/lemon sauce.

The finished product! Watch carefully as the sun-dried tomatoes can burn fast under the broiler!

Chicken Bryan

  • 6 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh herbs (basil, parsley)
  • salt and pepper
  • 3 - 4 ounces goat cheese
  • 3 ounces sun-dried tomatoes (2 or 3 tomatoes per chicken breast)
  • 3 Tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 5 fresh basil leaves, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
Combine olive oil and herbs. Brush chicken with olive oil/herbs, and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Prepare the grill. Put foil on the grill, spray foil with cooking oil. Grill chicken until cooked through. Meanwhile prepare the lemon butter. Combine butter, garlic, chopped basil and lemon juice. Preheat oven to broil.
When chicken is done remove from grill. Spread the goat cheese on top of each chicken breast. Place 2 or 3 sun-dried tomatoes on top of the goat cheese. Drizzle each chicken breast with the lemon butter mixture. Place chicken on a broil pan and broil in the oven for 2-3 minutes. Watch carefully or sun-dried tomatoes can burn.

Yield: 6 servings
