Ingredients

  • 6 oz goat cheese
  • 2 minced cloves of garlic
  • 1 green onion minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried marjoram
  • 1 pinch cayenne pepper
  • 4 chicken breasts, boneless, skinless
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

Method

In small bowl, combine goat cheese, garlic, green onion, thyme, marjoram and cayenne until smooth; set aside.

Trim any fat from chicken. With knife held horizontally and starting at thinner side, cut chicken in half almost but not all the way through; open like book. Spread 1 side of each with one-quarter of the cheese mixture. Fold uncovered side over; secure edge with small skewer or toothpicks.

In small bowl, whisk together oil, cumin, paprika, salt and pepper; brush all over chicken.

Place on greased grill over medium-high heat; close lid and grill, turning once, until golden brown and chicken is no longer pink inside, about 16 minutes.
