Chicken rolled in goat cheese and carmelized onions

This girl right here loves her some goat cheese, I mean it's practically one of my love languages, I can sit and eat a whole log by myself in one sitting. Paired with some carmelized onions and a little balsamic dressing, this makes a delicious filling rolled up in some breaded chicken. The sweet onions pairs really nicely with the tangy crumbly goat cheese. I love to serve it with a nice salad with some dried cranberries and candied walnuts for the perfect fall meal.

Ingredients 
  • 2 vidalia onions, thinly sliced
  • 2 tbsps of butter
  • 1/2 cup of balsamic vinegar
  • pinch of sugar
  • 1 log of goat cheese
  • 4 skinless boneless chicken breasts
  • 2 cups of panko bread crumbs
  • 1 cup of flour
  • 2 eggs
  • Olive oil for frying

Directions
  •  Preheat oven to 360 degrees
  • Melt butter in a pan over medium heat
  • Add onions to the pan, stirring every couple of minutes until soft.
  • Once onions are carmelized, add balsamic vinegar to the pan. I like to add a dash of sugar to the pan to help cut some of the acidity of the balsamic vinegar.
  • Let the onion/vinegar mixture cool.
  • Stir in goat cheese mixing well.  This will be your filling for the chicken.
  • Beat chicken until thin 
  • Add a generous amount of goat cheese mixture to each breast and roll up.
  • In a large bowl add flour and whisk in eggs.
  • In a second bowl add panko bread crumbs
  • Dip rolled chicken into flour-egg mixture, then dip into bowl of panko bread crumbs.
  • Heat olive oil in a pan over medium heat
  • Add chicken to the pan and lightly brown on each side.
  • Finish baking chicken in the oven (about 25-30 minutes)
  • For a little extra flavor, drizzle some balsamic vinegar on top.
