Chicken With Boursin Cheese

Chicken With Boursin Cheese

Diana Rattray
This easy chicken is tasty with rice, or use the pasta of your choice. Feel free to use sliced asparagus instead of peas, or use another vegetable.


  • 4 chicken breast halves, boneless, without skin
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • salt and pepper
  • 6 ounces sliced baby portabella or button mushrooms
  • 3/4 cup chicken broth
  • 1 container (4 1/2 to 5 1/2 ounces) light or regular boursin cheese with garlic and herbs
  • 1 cup frozen small peas, thawed
  • 8 to 12 grape or cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
  • hot cooked fettuccine or other pasta, or rice


Wash chicken breast halves; pat dry. Put chicken between sheets of plastic and pound gently to an even thickness. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.

In a large skillet, heat olive oil and butter over medium heat. Add chicken and cook for 5 to 7 minutes on each side, or until browned and cooked through. Remove to a plate and keep warm.

Add the mushrooms to the same skillet and sauté until tender. Add the chicken broth and thawed peas. Simmer for 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in the boursin cheese until well blended. Add the chicken and tomatoes; stir to blend, cover, and heat through. Remove from heat. Sprinkle with parsley, if desired. Serve over hot cooked fettuccine or similar pasta.
Serves 4.

Great Comfort Food, Member mikiabell

The recipe was very easy to follow, and even though my friends and I don't have too much experience in the kitchen, it turned out beautifully! I would definitely recommend using proper fettucini noodles, because we used spaghetti and the sauce lost some of its strong cheesy goodness. I definitely recommend this on a cold day when you're in need of something to cheer you up!
