Chicken Bryan a la Brooke

So I am madly in love with a dish from Carrabba's called Chicken Bryan.
It's to die for amazing. I love basil, sun dried tomatoes, and the goat cheese adds
an extra taste on tang to the dish. It makes my mouth water just thinking about it.
So I decided since V-Day was on a Monday, we would stay at home but I would dust off
my gourmet cooking skills and try to make our favorite dish.
Carrabba's a la Brooke.
I think I pretty much nailed it. It was heavenly.

But of course just like Carrabba's we had to start out with some bread and their amazing herbs and
EVOO to dip it in....I tried my hand at that recipe too! DELISH!!!

So without making you wait any longer....
Here is a little slice of heaven smothered in butter :)

Italian Herbs:

1 teaspoon crushed red pepper
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon dried rosemary
1 teaspoon dried basil
1 teaspoon dried parsley
1 teaspoon granulated garlic
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil (or as needed)

Combine all ingredients, except oil, on a deep plate or bowl. Pour olive oil over. Serve with warm bread.
