Quick and easy Grilled Chicken with Tomatoes and Goat Cheese is perfect for busy day dinner. Only 5 ingredients, too!


  • 1 cup yellow grape or cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 cup red grape or cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 ounces mild goat cheese (flavored works well) crumbles, divided
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, divided
  • Fresh ground pepper, to taste
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, butterflied and halved if thick


  1. Preheat grill or broiler.
  2. Put the tomatoes in a colander set over a medium mixing bowl. Toss with the sea salt and let stand for at least 20 minutes to release the juices.
  3. Remove and set aside the colander; into the collected juice from the tomatoes, whisk half the goat cheese and 2 tablespoons of the olive oil until smooth. Fold in the tomatoes and remaining goat cheese. Season with freshly ground pepper.
  4. Brush the chicken breasts with the remaining 1 tablespoon of olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill or broil on high heat for 4 to 5 minutes per side, or until cooked through.
  5. Serve with the tomato-goat cheese mixture on top.
