Chicken with goat cheese in lemon sauce

My mom has this amazing ability that comes with every good chef – the sense to know what flavors will mesh well to create your own combinations or substitutes. I hope to one day acquire such a skill, especially so I can be like my mom and create my own delicious recipes. This recipe for chicken with goat cheese in lemon sauce is deletable – it’s creamy, light and flavorful. Even better, though, is knowing my mom made it up herself. Maybe I’m just a proud daughter but maybe soon I’ll write about a delicious recipe made up entirely by me.
