Stuffed Chicken Breasts with Goat Cheese, Sun-Dried Tomatoes and Prosciutto

This is a sponsored post, written by me for Just BARE Chicken®.

Stuffed Chicken Breasts with Goat Cheese, Sun-Dried Tomatoes and Prosciutto

Admittedly, I have not always been a big meat eater.  After college, I decided to become a vegetarian but after about 6 months it was obvious that I wasn’t providing my body with enough protein.  And I had signed up for a half marathon and started to crave grilled chicken on a regular basis.

Fast forward five years to the present and I find myself again in the middle of half marathon training and find my body screaming for protein.  So much so that I’ve had chicken for breakfast a couple of days.  So weird, I know, but that’s what I’m craving.

While I still love my meatless meals, we have been eating a lot more chicken lately.  And I’m pumped to introduce you to Just BARE Chicken® today!  I discovered Just BARE Chicken® a little over a year ago and have used it since.  I remember Paul and I were on a big health kick, we had gone on a run one evening, and I had been reading Natalie’s blog series on Staying Whole in a Processed World.  I went to the grocery store, picked up a package of Just BARE Chicken® breasts and never looked back.  We have made a lot of strides over the past few years to eat less-processed foods, buy produce, eggs and beef locally when possible.  Local chicken is harder to come by so I love being able to run to the grocery store and pick up a package of Just BARE.

Just BARE Chicken® is natural chicken, it’s humane certified and you can trace your packages to the family farms where the chickens were raised.  There are no added hormones or antibiotics and the chickens are vegetable and grain-fed.  You can believe that I am 100% on board with those standards.  And beyond that – it’s truly some of the most-moist chicken I’ve ever had!  The chicken I used for this recipe came to me from Minnesota from farmers named Jim & Cara and David & Roxanne.  How cool is that?

I’m so excited to be in partnership with Just BARE this year.  Just BARE offers a digital cookbook which features five-ingredient (yes, 5!) recipes from a recipe competition they hosted last year.  This recipe for Stuffed Chicken Breasts with Goat Cheese, Sun-Dried Tomatoes and Prosciutto is from that cookbook.  I could not believe how fast this recipe was and so simple!  And you guys know how I feel about sun-dried tomatoes lately!  The only change I made was instead of using oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes, I used the dry ones my brother-in-law brought me from Sicily.  I truly had a hard time deciding which recipe to make from the cookbook.  This recipe is full of flavor while still healthy.  The goat cheese and sun-dried tomatoes totally won me over and the method is so fun.  And how could you beat prosciutto-wrapped chicken?!

    I was veg for 3 years, and broke my meat fast on a Chili Cheese Burger from Tommy’s! Now, because of growing up on a farm, it’s really important for me to support humane farms (even more important than organic). On the west coast we have Foster Farms fresh chicken (they only do frozen to the rest of the US), but I love that Just Bare reaches more people.
    Thanks for sharing this!

    Des @ LIfe's Ambrosia — July 24, 2013 @ 2:15 pm

    Like Jackie, I use Foster Farms fresh chicken I’ve never heard of Just Bare. I hope my grocery store starts carrying it soon! And anything stuffed with goat cheese = amazing in my book.

    This chicken sounds so good – my husband would love the goat cheese part of it! We have made big strides in the last year or so as well, but I know I can always do more!

    I was a fish-etarian for about 12 years. Eventually bacon (really any pig) was my weakness and I came back over to the dark side. But vegetarian remain some of my favorites today. This dish had me at prosciutto and goat cheese (another weakness of mine!)

    I’m a firm believer that we should listen to ourselves when it comes to what to eat, Cassie – gotta eat what you need to do a half-marathon!!! And this looks like a particularly delicious way to get that protein.

    Joanne — July 24, 2013 @ 8:51 pm

    It’s funny, I don’t seem to ever really crave protein while training…just salt. Lots and lots of salt. 🙂 Sounds like a great option for chicken though!

    Oh heck yes! Cassie, this is perfection. I make chicken all the time. At least 4 nights a week. That’s a ton of chicken and I am always looking for new ways to prepare it. I love the goat cheese inside! And sun dried tomatoes. My other love 🙂
