Chicken with Balsamic Syrup and Goat Cheese

I am proud to admit that I adore goat cheese. If you’ve never tried it, then you must! It’s creamy, tangy and thankfully it’s not pricey, like it used to be. You can buy goat cheese in just about any grocery store now and in several sizes, so you can buy just what you need. I first watched Giada De Laurentiis make this 3 or 4 years ago on the Food Network. I promptly made it for our Valentines Day dinner and loved it. The original recipe is made with Filet Mignon, but that just isn’t practical for us all the time. You shouldn’t have to buy filet to have a sauce this great! Although, for the record, it tastes amazing with steak as well. OH and hey by the way, this takes about 20 minutes to make. Hooray for a quick and easy dinner!

Ingredients

  • Ingredients

  • 1 1/2

    cups balsamic vinegar

  • 3

    tablespoons sugar

  • 2

    tablespoons butter

  • 4-6

    thin boneless skinless chicken breasts

  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

  • 2

    ounces soft fresh goat cheese

Directions

Boil the balsamic vinegar and sugar in a heavy small saucepan over medium-high heat until reduced to 1/3 cup, stirring occasionally, about 18 minutes. (A great way to test for the proper consistency of the syrup is to dip the spoon in the syrup, draw a line on the back of the spoon with your finger, if the sauce is done, the line should stay pretty clean without the sauce running back into the line) Meanwhile, preheat the broiler. Melt the butter in a heavy large skillet over medium-high heat. Sprinkle the chicken with salt and pepper. Saute chicken until cooked through and golden brown on both sides. Transfer the chicken to a baking sheet. Crumble the cheese over the chicken and broil just until the cheese melts, about 1 minute. Sprinkle with pepper. Transfer the chicken to plates. Drizzle the balsamic sauce around the chicken breasts and serve.
