Cook's Notes

If you're not using the pesto immediately, you can store it in a sealed container in the refrigerator for up to two weeks; let come to room temperature before serving.

    We love this as a unique way to prepare chicken. Usually I don't bother with the mint pesto anymore as the goat cheese and apricots and almonds are more than enough to make this delicious!

    I used fresh mozzarella instead of goat cheese. Personal preference. Also, my kids don't like mint so I made chimchurri to put over the top of it. I served this with couscous and sautéed snap peas. Great recipe and my kids, husband, and I loved it.

    Excellent recipe... easy too. The combination of goat cheese and sweet apricots was fabulous. Crispy breadcrumbs were delicious!

    Always goes down well in our house- only use the mint leaves in the pesto, any stalks don;t break down and make it taste woody.

    Our family loves this dish. I like cutting the breast in half lengthwise for smaller portions before stuffing. I found that it tastes great chopped up over spinach salad the next day.

    I found this recipe relatively easy and the mint pesto definitely goes well with it. I would maybe try feta cheese next time as I felt it could use a little more sharpness. I'll let you know how it goes the next time I make it.
