Boursin Chicken

I kept seeing this recipe around on the internet and I finally had to try it. Boursin is a creamy cheese spread you can buy at the super market and I love it. It is great on crackers or baguettes. The garlic herb is my favorite and it is what this recipe uses, so I had to make it.

I also liked that this recipe looked simple and quick for an easy weeknight dinner. I served it over mashed potatoes and loved it that way, but you could also serve with rice or over veggies – the sauce was SO good on the asparagus and I’d honestly make it just to serve over vegetables again.

This recipe really couldn’t be easier. You just season and pan sear the chicken, cook it until it is ready, make a sauce with some onions, garlic, chicken broth and the cheese, season and serve over your rice, potatoes or vegetables.
