In an effort to save money, I've started cooking again instead of going out all the time.  I love to cook, but I also love the convenience of just running to the deli for a sandwich when I come home from work.  So for this to work, the recipes have to be simple and fast.

Today I had to get to the office very early (about two hours earlier than I normally drag my ass into work).  Since I was paranoid about oversleeping (and had been having bad dreams so I couldn't really sleep anyway) I woke up much earlier than normal.  Finding myself with some free time, I cooked lunch/dinner for the week.  Here it is, a recipe from the Barefoot Countessa, modified by Crash.

4  split Chicken Breasts, bone-in with skin
1  7 oz. stick of dill goat cheese
4 Basil leaves
Olive Oil

Peel back the skin from the chicken breasts, insert two fairly thick pieces of goat cheese and a basil leaf under the skin.  Drizzle with olive oil.  Sprinkle with salt and pepper.  Bake on a baking sheet for 35-40 min. at 375°.

I haven't tasted the chicken yet (lunch is still an hour away), but it smelled amazing.

Tonight when I get home, I'm planning to make hummus.  If I do, I'll post the recipe tomorrow.
