ingredients

1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 tablespoon minced yellow onion
2 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup dry white wine
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
2/3 cup cold butter, sliced
1 1/2 cup chopped sun-dried tomatoes
1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon white pepper
6 boneless skinless chicken breast halves
extra virgin olive oil (for brushing)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
8 ounces goat cheese, room temperature

directions

Saute garlic and onion in 2 Tbsp. butter in a large skillet over medium heat until tender. Stir wine and lemon juice into skillet, increase heat to medium high, and simmer to reduce by half. Reduce heat to low and stir in cold butter, one slice at a time. Stir in tomatoes, basil, kosher salt, and white pepper; remove from heat; set aside.

Brush chicken breasts with olive oil; sprinkle with salt and black pepper. Grill chicken over hot coals 15-20 minutes, or until cooked through. Just before chicken is done, place equal amounts of cheese on each chicken breast. Spoon prepared sun-dried tomato sauce over chicken.

Tastes just like the restaurant. We had their special one time which was sirloin bryan. We like it more than chicken version so I make this recipe and serve over steak. So good!

Ab fab! I did as posted and tweaked the wine and lemon juice and correctly reduced the sun-dried tomatoes ( added fire-roasted peppers). It's absolutely the goat cheese that makes this dish so, if you substituted something else OR added proscuitto, you ate something besides Chicken Bryan!

Absolutely delicious and tastes just like Carraba's, even with me using chicken broth in lieu of the wine. Definitely a recipe I will use again and again! :D

REVIEW: recipe rating
This is a great recipe. I've used it many times because my husband loves the "real" version. I like to double the amount of sauce and reduce the amount of sun dried tomatoes. This has to be almost the exact recipe - our Carrabbas does NOT put prosciutto on top as one reviewer stated.

My favorite dish. I will make this many times.

REVIEW: recipe rating
This was really good. I like the original, but that's a lot of butter, so I cut it back to 5 tbs, and added about 1/3 cup chicken broth. I don't know a lot about cooking, but that worked out for me. I also used feta cheese instead of goat cheese, because I always wished the original had it.

COMMENT:
I have not tried this recipe yet but have had the real deal many times and was looking for the copycat because I love it. However, Carrabas has proscuitto on top as well and this recipe does not. It really puts it over the top...

Never had the chicken at Carraba's, but this recipe was great. Very rich not for everyday, but for a night of misbehaving perfect.

I found this recipe when planning an Italian themed picnic. I followed some of the reviewers suggestion to decrease the amount of sun-dried tomatoes. It was VERY good. It is a keeper.
Thank you.

REVIEW: recipe rating
Chicken Bryan is my favorite dish at Carrabba's so I was excited to try this recipe. I used less sun-dried tomatoes than called for and I just loved it. I have served it to my family members who also love it at Carrabba's and they say it takes just like the real thing!

REVIEW: recipe rating
EXACT. Had this once at Carrabbas and that was enough to try it. My husband said it was better then the restaurants'. Must be the free wine and dogs laying at his feet that added to the positive experience.

This dish was very easy to prepare and the flavors are just so complimentary and WONDERFUL! The flavor of the wine definitely compliments the flavor of the goat cheese. The colorful presentation is just PERFECT. YUMM-O! Not even one disappointed guest.

WOW!
i love this recipe in the restaurant and was so happy to make it myself. i made it for my picky in laws and they raved even tho it's nothing they'd ever try. i'm making it tonight for new year's and cant wait!

REVIEW: recipe rating
pretty good recipe.. I've never tried the actual one from carraba's, but this was pretty good. I would reccommend serving it with more than one side because you will probably get kind of sick of the chicken after one or two pieces... the sundried tomatoes and chesse become a bit overwhelming. You should definitely try this recipe.

REVIEW: recipe rating
I live far away from the one and only Carraba's in Omaha, NE, so when I found this recipe, I just had to try it. It is AWESOME! It tastes just like it does at Carraba's. I couldn't find the "caprino" cheese, so I just used plain goat cheese, and it was fine. I can't wait to have the leftovers tomorrow!

I have made this several times and it is to die for!!! The sauce is heavy on the sun dried tomatoes, so I cut it back a bit. Other than that, PERFECT AND EASY.

REVIEW: recipe rating
We tried this recipe for a large crowd on 2/14, and there was not a scraping left! Everyone raved about it and some came back for thirds. We added butter-sauteed portobello caps that we sliced into thirds afterward. We also sliced the chicken up prior to adding the sauce, and it worked better for a large crowd. Also, sauteeing the onion and garlic ahead is fine, but don't add the butter to the sauce until just before serving time...the emulsion broke on us when we reheated it in the morning. If this happens(your butter will turn to oil), simply pour off about 3/4 of the liquid and add in the butter again over low heat. It will turn out fine. Great job on whomever submitted this recipe!!
