Boursin Chicken

Why don't I buy Boursin cheese more? Stirred into mashed potatoes or eggs or on toast...again, why have I forgotten about this humble little herbed cheese? Here's yet another great use. Chicken and Boursin together? Genius!

Boursin Chicken

4 split chicken breasts
1 box garlic Boursin cheese
1/4 cup crushed walnuts or pecans
1/4 cup chopped carrots
bread crumbs (made from 2 Tbls. Parmesan cheese, 1/4 c. plain bread crumbs)
2 Tbls. chopped parsley
1/2 stick melted butter

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Pound chicken breasts until thin. In a bowl mix Boursin cheese and 1 Tbl. flour, nuts, carrots and parsley and stir to combine.
Place a 1/4 of mixture in middle of the chicken breast and roll. Brush with melted butter and roll in bread crumbs. Place in greased pan - seam-side down. repeat with all breasts. Bake for 45 minutes.
