  • 3 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 4 oz goat cheese softened to room temperature
  • ½ tbsp Herbs de Provence Spice Blend


  • ½ cup olive oil
  • ½ tbsp chopped garlic
  • 2 tbsp dijon mustard
  • ¼ cup lemon juice
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp black pepper


  • Combine the ingredients of the marinade in a small bowl. In a gallon bag, place the chicken breasts and the marinade and allow to rest for at least 2 hours or overnight.
  • While the chicken is marinating, combine Herbs de Provence with the goat cheese.
  • Once the chicken is finished marinating, preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Remove the chicken from the marinade, but reserve the extra. On the fat side of the chicken breast, use a knife to cut a slit into the chicken breast without coming out the other side. Stuff ⅓ of the goat cheese mixture into each chicken breast.
  • Place the chicken in a glass 9x13 pan, and pour the remaining marinade mixture over the chicken breasts. Cook in the oven for about 40 minutes or until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees. Enjoy!

  • Chicken Breast: Use boneless, skinless chicken breasts for this recipe
  • Dijon Mustard: You can also use honey mustard, spicy mustard, or any other kind of mustard you’d like! 
  • Herbs de Provence: This is a spice blend normally sold in the spice aisle of the grocery store. If you can’t find any in the store, you can also buy it online
  • Goat Cheese: These normally are sold in 4 oz blocks. If you don’t like goat cheese you can substitute with cream cheese or even feta cheese!
  • Marinade Ingredients: Lemon juice, olive oil, chopped garlic, salt, and pepper
  • If you want to use a meltier cheese, boursin cheese or cream cheese would be a great choice. If you don’t like the taste of goat cheese but don’t want a melty cheese, you can use feta. 
  • Use a meat thermometer to check and make sure your chicken is done! Chicken is finished when it’s reached an internal temperature of 160 degrees.
  • Make roasted potatoes to serve alongside the chicken. The leftover marinade/sauce is great when poured over the potatoes.  
  • Add sauteed spinach into the cheese if you want a healthier filling mixture!
