Sun-Dried Tomato Chicken

 Sun-Dried Tomato Chicken
My husband likes to order a particular chicken entree at a local restaurant, so I created a lighter version he can enjoy at home. The sun-dried tomatoes are wonderful combined with the goat cheese. We serve it with a green salad and Italian bread. —Anna Rhyne of Anderson, South Carolina
