Mealthy Tip

Add chopped green onion, parsley, or cilantro to the cheese mixture for extra flavor. For a Thanksgiving flavor, mix dried cranberries in with the goat cheese. Want a different flavor profile? Use blue cheese and baby kale instead of the goat cheese and arugula. Or add a slice of ham to the filling for a nice savory addition.

This was a winner with my friends. Personally, I'm not an arugula fan, but the chicken and goat cheese was dynamite. I ended up removing the arugula off my plate and eating the chicken by itself, but it was still fulfilling.

Chicken with goat cheese and peppery arugula is a natural pairing. I like to use the zest of a preserved lemon to really kick up the flavor. Delicious.
