    Directions

    1. Preheat the oven to 425°F.
    2. Mix the goat cheese with the lemon zest, lemon juice, and parsley until well blended. Slice the garlic bulbs very thinly and chop about 1/3 of the green stalks. If using regular garlic and chives, mince finely. Mix the garlic into the goat cheese mixture. Season the mixture lightly with a pinch of salt and fresh black pepper.
    3. Loosen the skin on the chicken breasts by running your fingers underneath it, leaving it attached at the edges. Cut a deep slit — about 3 inches long and and inch and a half deep — into the breast.
    4. Divide the goat cheese mixture into fourths. Stuff a fourth of the goat cheese mixture into the slit in one of the chicken breast, pushing it as deep as possible into the slit. Use a toothpick or two to hold the slit closed if necessary. Stuff another fourth of the goat cheese mixture under the skin of the chicken breast; slide your finger across the top of the skin to spread the cheese into an even layer. Repeat with stuffing the other chicken breast.
    5. Drizzle both breasts with olive oil, if desired, and season liberally with salt and pepper. Place in a baking dish or on a lined baking sheet. Cook for about 30 minutes, or until the skin is brown and crisp and an instant read thermometer inserted in the thickest part of the breast reads 165°F.
