Brie Chicken

I made this once - for my roommates from a recipe in The Seattle Times, and it was quick and tasted great. But the brie doesn't look great after baking, so save some herbs for the end. - RGA

  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 large clove garlic, crushed
  • 1/2 tsp. dried basil or rosemary, crushed.
  • 4 chicken breast halves with bone and skin removed
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/3 lb. herb brie or camembert cheese, rind removed, cut into 4 thin pieces
  • Freshly ground black pepper to taste

Stir together the olive oil, garlic, rosemary or basil. Brush onto the chicken and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place in a foil-lined baking pan and bake 30 minutes. Remove from oven, and turn the heat up to broil. Place a slice of brie on each chicken breast. Run under hot broiler just until the cheese starts to melt (4-6 minutes).
