Chicken with Chevre, sun dried tomatoes and lemon

Goat cheese makes everything it touches better. Take my infamous chicken with herbs in wine sauce. We love that dish and have it at least once a week. Its quick & easy to prepare. It however can get boring after a while. Thats where the goat cheese comes in.

The chevre has a creamy texture, very similar to cream cheese, but with an added tang that only goat cheese can provide. Don't be afraid of goat cheese, its quite possibly the best cheese ever. There isn't a goat cheese that I've tried and not liked. I can NOT say that about standard cows milk cheese. Added bonus, goat cheese is lower in fat naturally than cows milk, so the cheese is automatically low fat.

To the sauce I add the juice of 1/2 a lemon and lemon zest. Add sun dried tomatoes to the sauce, about 5 to 6 julienne strips per chicken breast. Top each breast with a medallion of chevre, the sun dried tomato strips and the lemony wine sauce & dinner is served.
