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

    4 servings


  • 3/4 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 tablespoon butter

    I made this last night and it was great! I used thin sliced chicken breasts and flattened them out (reduced bake time to 30 min). I also substituted feta for goat cheese. They tasted like something you would get at a restaurant! Note: With the thin chicken breasts they are smaller so hungry eaters will probably eat 2!
