Here's a culinary quiz question: what two foods are often described as tangy, but taste nothing like each other? If you answered “goat cheese” and “sun-dried tomato,” congratulations, your check is in the mail. (No, it isn't.) This meal combines two times the tang, with creamy goat cheese and jammy sun-dried tomatoes topping succulent chicken breasts. Another thing that has appreciable “tang” is balsamic vinegar, which, combined with honey, dresses the vegetables with tart goodness. Here's another quiz question: how quickly can you add this meal to your basket?
