Balsamic Chicken with Goat Cheese

This is one of my favorite recipes to serve for company.  It's incredibly flavorful and anything with goat cheese seems fancy.  If you live near a Costco, that is where you'll find the best price on goat cheese.  Enjoy!

Mash together in a bowl:
1/2 lb. goat cheese
1 garlic clove, minced
1 package fresh basil, minced (dried will not work for this)

3 chicken breasts sliced thin to make 6 thin breasts
salt and pepper

Saute chicken in olive oil over medium heat.
Cook until almost done. Remove from heat and place in baking dish.
Cover with the cheese mixture and place in oven @ 350 until cheese is melted. ~10min

Into the pan the chicken was cooked in, add:
1 c. chicken broth
1/4 c. balsamic vinegar

Cook until reduced to syrupy consistency.
Add 1/2 stick butter (cut into pats)
Remove from heat and swirl until melted.

Pour over chicken and serve with rice, couscous or roasted potatoes.
