Ingredients:

  • 2 Sargent Farms Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts
  • ½ tsp (3 g) salt
  • ¼ tsp (1 g) ground pepper
  • 2 tbsp (30 ml) red pepper jelly
  • ½ cup (12 g) arugula, chopped
  • 3 tbsp (28 g) crumbled goat cheese
  • 1 tbsp (15 ml) olive oil

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C).
  2. Place Sargent Farms chicken breast on a cutting board. Using a sharp paring knife slice a pocket into each chicken breast, making sure not to cut all the way through the breast.
  3. Season chicken with salt and pepper, including the inside of pocket.
  4. Evenly spread the jelly into each pocket, followed by half of the chopped arugula and goat cheese.
  5. Heat oil in an oven-safe frying pan over medium-high heat. Carefully add chicken to pan and cook for 2-3 minutes, flip chicken and transfer to preheated oven. Cook for 20-25 minutes, or until chicken is cooked to an internal temperature of 165°F (74°C).
  6. Serve chicken with rice or roasted potatoes, and your vegetable of choice.
