Kick-Off to Summer BBQ - Goat Cheese Stuffed Chicken Breasts
Late entry but I'm here... I'm joining Debbie at Mountain Breaths in her first blog event "A Kick-off to Summer BBQ" Make sure you check out her blog to link to all the participants, you'll see some mouth-watering recipes you'll definitely want to make this summer!
My recipe is one I found on Canadian Living for Goat Cheese-Stuffed Chicken Breasts! I developed a taste for Goat Cheese and now can't seem to find enough uses for it! Since I didn't want a sloppy presentation I didn't get carried away with the goat cheese spread..just enough to get the unique flavor.
In addition I used another recipe from the same website for Barbecued Mini Potatoes, using little red potatoes! These had a little crunch on the outside and nice and soft on the inside..perfect. Also some fresh asparagus I am eating almost at every meal since they are in season. It helps when I have my own personal source to get as much as I want (my sister, Bev).
For dessert I couldn't find a recipe for the grill that "spoke" to me so I whipped up a vanilla pudding with a caramel swirl of topping sauce....topped off with a white chocolate raspberry mold. I've been waiting to use this new mold set I purchased last winter and they turned out so well, flipped them over and all came tumbling out!
Another event is just around the corner... join Kathleen from Cuisine Kathleen "Show Me Your White Event" on June 23rd! Check out Kathleen's site for details..for some reason I don't think she means for me to show photos of my "big-girl whites" !! Even without that..it will be a beautiful event I'm sure, we can all drool over everyone elses tablesettings!!
Thanks Debbie for hosting this event - I've already copied a number of recipes from other participants and can't wait to try them! I am kind of rushing this post so please forgive me for not getting into many details....
