Carrabbas Chicken Bryan

Carrabbas Chicken Bryan is one of my favorite chicken dishes that you can find in a restaurant. I love the chicken drenched in a lemon-basil wine sauce with a piece of savory goat cheese on top. I love to order this dish with mashed potatoes because to miss any of this sauce is well something that is almost criminal.

Carrabbas Chicken Bryan

Ingredients

  • 4 chicken breasts
  • salt
  • pepper
  • olive oil
  • 8 ounces of goat cheese
  • 8 tablespoons of butter
  • 3/4 cup of dry white wine
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup chopped white onions
  • 2 teaspoons chopped garlic
  • 2 tablespoons basil, sliced thin
  • 2 tablespoons sun dried tomatoes

Instructions

Prepare chicken by wrapping in plastic wrap, and pounding out until thin.   Remove chicken from plastic wrap and pat dry with a paper towel.  Season chicken with salt and pepper, and brush with olive oil.  Cook chicken on a grill until it is done, it should take 3 to 4 minutes on each side.   When chicken is done, place chicken on plate, and cover lightly with plastic wrap.  Slice the goat cheese into four slices and shape the cheese into disks, one for each piece of chicken.

Prepare the sauce by sauteing the onions and garlic in 2 tablespoons of butter.  Cook garlic and onions until they are fragrant, and the onions are translucent.  Add wine and lemon juice to pan, and cook wine until it has reduced by half, by simmering the wine gently.   When the wine has been reduced in half, add 3 tablespoons of cold butter,  whisk until the butter has melted completely.  Turn off burner, and add remaining butter, whisk in.  The sauce should be getting thick now.  Now, pour sauce through a strainer, to strain out the onions and garlic, return the sauce to the warm pan, and stir in half of the basil, and add sun dried tomatoes.

Plate the chicken by placing one chicken breast onto a plate, place the goat cheese on the chicken, and then spoon sauce over the chicken.   Top each chicken breast with the remaining basil.

    What is a good wine to use

    • stephaniemanley

      I would use an inexpensive Chardonnay.

  • Nancy

    Can you please tell me if you used oil-packed sun dried tomatoes or the dry form?

    • stephaniemanley

      I used the oil packed for this recipe.

  • Lea

    I was very good, but next time I will use less butter.

    • stephaniemanley

      Thanks for letting me know.

    HOLY GOAT CHEESE! I feel like a uber chef now! Cooked this for my girlfriend and she went goat sh**, if there is such a thing! Will always use this particular recipe! Thanks so so so so much !

    • stephaniemanley

      Well I am happy to hear that she went goat sh**. It’s a great recipe, I am glad it worked out well for you.

  • Sabrina

    Just made it and it was delicious, tasted just like the restaurants except mine was pan fried haha! Making it again tonight since I don’t want the goat cheese to go to waste.

    • stephaniemanley

      I hope you enjoyed it, I love goat cheese. This is a great recipe.

  • Kristen

    Made this tonight…delicious! I will definitely be making it again. The only thing that would have made it better would be a wood fire grill in my kitchen for the chicken. In lieu of that, it was amazingly close to the real deal!

    • stephaniemanley

      Well most of us don’t have a wood fired grill in our kitchen, we can all dream. I am glad you thought the recipe was very close!

  • Katherine

    Made this sauce last night for my hubby and he LOVED it! But, he had Filet Bryan!

    • stephaniemanley

      This sauce would be great over some pasta!

  • sarah

          • stephaniemanley

  • AmeenaS

    I’m not fond of goat cheese. What is a substitute for that?
    Thanks

      Not really sure on this one, for me goat cheese is what makes this dish. I would add what ever cheese you would like. I don’t think cheddar would work. Maybe something like a dollop of cream cheese.

  • francesca

    can i substitute the white wine for something else, since I don’t have it?

    • http://www.copykat.com Stephanie

      You could try chicken broth as a substitute.

      You could try substituting it for chicken broth.

    This is a yummy recipe. Love the Quick preparation. The simple seasoning made the chicken flavor come out on the grill. As far as the pan sauce, totally worth it! Take the time to make the sauce. I normally make the chicken in the pan and then make a pan sauce with lemon and capers. Additions to the recipe, I used 1/2c. of onion. Then rather than 2t. garlic, I used 3 cloves minced. Added a little olive oil to the butter also. I reduced the sauce too far ( had duties at the grill). So added 1/3c of wine and 1T lemon. And a sprinkle of chicken Maggi. Then when I stained the sauce I pressed the juice through the strainer. Use a good goat cheese. Love the flavor combination. Don’t forget the mashed potatoes.

    Where can I get more of Carrabbas Recipes?

    Likewise, I cannot see the recipe on my android phone. I have other ways to connect to the internet, but my recipe app is on my phone and it contains a handy portable shopping list. So being able to see and copy recipes directly on my phone would be helpful.

    Yummy…Carrabba’s is one of my favorite restaurants, and I LOVE this dish! Saving to make very soon!!

  • Tara Cooper

    I wonder if the recipe would be pretty much the same for the Filet Bryan… Minus pounding out the beef filet. I love the Filet Bryan… can’t wait to try it!

    • Stephanie Manley

      My guess is that yes, it would work well.

  • Pam

    I turned my phone off to reboot to see if that would help, it didn’t. I also deleted the mobile book mark that didn’t help either. I’m all out of ideas. HELP!!!!! I love this site.

          If you switch your view to regular theme you can see it, I am still trying to work out the bugs between a new format and smart phone displays.
