|Goat cheese stuffed chicken breasts|
|Slow Roasted Tomatoes|
As dinner hour approached, so to did the daily afternoon activity scramble. As the clock was ticking, I made the quick decision to simply stuff all of these ingredients into chicken breasts and hope for the best. Forty minutes later, the house smelled amazing, the kids were clamoring for dinner, and I couldn't stop taste testing tiny bites as I sliced the stuffed chicken breasts and put them neatly (ha!) on my children's plates. We served our stuffed chicken breasts with a beautiful salad and some garlicky rice and left the table totally satisfied. Give this recipe a try ... easy, delicious.
|Amazing bacon from C-Saw Hill|
4 ounces goat cheese
1 tomato, sliced and slow roasted
2 slices bacon, chopped
2 or 3 ramps, chopped
A few cloves of garlic
Salt and pepper
1. Slow roast tomatoes ... thinly slice tomatoes, drizzle with olive oil and cook at 250 degrees for about 2 hours. Add the cloves of garlic to the pan as well and let them roast with the tomatoes. When the tomatoes are done, cut them into thin strips.
2. Chop the bacon and the ramps and cook them together with slices of garlic. After the bacon is nice and crispy, lay the pieces on a paper towel to absorb any excess grease.

4. Thinly slice the chicken breasts and serve with a beautiful salad or greens. Enjoy!
A few notes ... This is a great time of year to experiment with ramps. Ramps are in the onion family and they are only growing for a limited time in this area. They are pungent!!
