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


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

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.

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.

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.
