Chicken Stuffed With Goat Cheese
|Mild goat cheese||4 Ounce, softened (Fresh)|
|Sweet butter||2 1⁄2 Tablespoon, softened|
|Chopped fresh cilantro leaves||2 Tablespoon|
|Freshly ground black pepper||To Taste|
|Roasting chicken||5 Pound (1 Chicken)|
|Lime butter||1 Cup (16 tbs)|
Combine goat cheese, butter, and cilantro in a mixing bowl or food processor and blend or process until smooth and thoroughly mixed.
Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Carefully loosen the skin over the breast of chicken with your fingers and stuff goat cheese mixture between skin and breast meat, patting the mixture out as evenly as possible.
Pull skin back into place.
Brush generously with lime butter.
Place the chicken on a grill 4 to 6 inches from very hot mesquite coals and grill, basting with lime butter and turning chicken every ten minutes so that it browns and cooks evenly for about 45 minutes, or until the juices run clear when chicken is pierced with a fork.
