Mediterranean Stuffed Chicken Breasts

This might be my new favorite dish. I am so in love with the combination of the filling for the chicken. Last night, I decided to throw together a dish from the ingredients I had in my pantry. I think I did pretty well πŸ™‚

(I am currently patting myself on the back right now. ..)

Okay, but seriously. This dish will now be a go-to meal in my kitchen. It is SO easy and quick to make. The combination of flavors is heavenly. And it has goat cheese…so it has to be good.
