Now is your chance to take your chicken breast game to new heights when you top it with this crispy goat cheese crust. Start by stirring the panko-goat cheese mixture together, pressing it onto a chicken breast, and tossing it in the oven. Serve it next to oven-roasted potatoes and a carrot mash, and you have a meal that's a real stunner.
Stem and mince parsley. Cut potato into ¾" cubes. Peel, trim, and cut carrot into ½" pieces. Mince garlic. Pat chicken breasts dry, and season both sides with ¼ tsp. salt and ¼ tsp. pepper.
Place a large oven-safe non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add panko to hot pan and toast until light golden brown, 30-60 seconds.
Remove from burner. Let panko cool 5 minutes. Wipe pan clean and reserve.
Combine cooled panko, goat cheese, parsley (reserve a pinch for sauce), ¼ tsp. salt, and ¼ tsp. pepper in a mixing bowl. Set aside.
Cook the Potatoes
Return pan used to toast panko to medium-high heat and add 2 Tbsp. olive oil. Add potatoes to hot pan and stir, 1 minute. Cover, reduce heat to medium, and cook 5 minutes, stirring halfway through.
Uncover, place pan in hot oven, and roast until golden brown and tender, 20-22 minutes, stirring halfway through.
Transfer cooked potatoes to a plate and season with a pinch of salt and pepper.
Wipe pan clean and reserve.
While potatoes roast, start chicken.
Cook the Chicken
Place chicken breasts on prepared baking sheet. Top each chicken breast evenly with goat cheese-panko mixture, pressing gently to adhere.
Roast until well-browned and chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 17-20 minutes.
Remove from oven and rest 5 minutes.
While chicken roasts, make carrot mash.
Make the Carrot Mash
Add carrot pieces to boiling water and cook until very tender, 15-18 minutes.
Drain carrot in a colander. Return to pot and add 1 Tbsp. evaporated milk (reserve remaining for sauce) and 1 tsp. olive oil. Mash until carrot forms a coarse puree. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper.
Set aside and keep warm.
Make the Sauce
Return pan used to cook potatoes to medium heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil. Add garlic to hot pan and cook until fragrant, 30 seconds.
Add remaining evaporated milk and bring to simmer. Stir often until slightly thickened, 3-4 minutes.
Remove from burner and swirl in butter and remaining parsley.
