The sauce will solidify once it is cold, so you will need to warm it up in the microwave or on the stove.

Expert Tips and Variations

  • You can slice the chicken in half making 4 breasts turn into 8. I find that for added flavor you can use thinner chicken so the sauce and the cheese has more of a stand-out flavor.
  • If you don’t have goat cheese you can use fresh mozzarella or even feta cheese.
  • This Carrabba’s lemon butter sauce is also delicious paired with shrimp and even pork if you want to change up the recipe a bit.
  • Chicken needs to read 165 degrees internally. Pick the thickest part of the chicken to check.
