Stuffed Chicken Breasts Over Pasta
If you don't want to stuff the chicken, skip that step and crumble the goat cheese over the chicken and pasta. Same delicious flavors, but with a bit less work.

Stuffed with what, you ask? Creamy goat cheese. Sounds fancy, but the prep work certainly isn't. All you need to do is cut a pocket in the thickest part of the chicken breasts and stuff it with cheese. Bake the chicken as you normally would. (Not sure where to start? Look over this recipe for Spinach, Cheese and Prosciutto-Stuffed Chicken Breasts for prep advice.) Next, cook the pasta of your choice, drain and toss it with olive oil, sundried tomatoes and fresh basil. Once the chicken is done, arrange it atop the pasta, and you've got yourself a Mediterranean meal to die for.

This next recipe comes from chillier climates, but it's just as delicious.
