If you love Chicken Bryan at Carrabba’s you will love this dish, its my little copy cat recipe. To make it even more authentic add Sun dried tomatoes to the sauce, either way it is delicious.
Lemon Basil Chicken with Goat Cheese
4 Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts
1 T Italian Seasoning
Salt and Pepper
2 T Olive Oil

2 oz Lemon Juice ( About 1 lemon)
1 T heavy Cream
12 T cold unsalted Butter cubed ( 1 1/2 sticks)
1 T chopped fresh basil
4 1 ” slices of goat cheese
Sprinkle both sides of the chicken breast with Italian seasoning and salt and pepper. Heat oil in a large pan then add chicken cooking about 4 min on each side. turn to low and cover until chicken is cooked all the way through, use a meat thermometer to check doneness. Remove chicken from pan.
Reduce heat to med high. Whisk in cream. Add Butter 1 T at a time whisking constantly and removing from heat as needed. Continue adding each tablespoon of butter and whisking until all have been added and the sauce is smooth. Season with salt and pepper
