Preparation

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.
