Chicken Bryan is one of Carrabba's Italian Grill's most ordered dish. It consists of an 8 oz grilled chicken breast, topped with goat cheese, sundried tomatoes, and a basil lemon butter sauce. This dish is named after the city of Bryan, Texas, where the Carrabba family settled in the United States. The first time I went to Carrabba's that's what I ordered and I knew I just had to find a copycat recipe of this. I must say this one came pretty close. Find out for yourself.
  • ½ cup dry white wine
  • ¼ cup fresh lemon juice
  • ⅔ cup cold butter, sliced
  • 1½ cups chopped sun-dried tomatoes
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh basil
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon white pepper
  • 6 boneless skinless chicken breast halves
  • extra virgin olive oil, for brushing
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • 8 ounces caprino goat cheese or 8 ounces other goat cheese, room temperature
  1. Saute garlic and onion in 2 Tbsp butter in a large skillet over medium heat until tender. Stir wine and lemon juice into skillet, increase heat to medium high, and simmer to reduce by half. Reduce heat to low and stir in cold butter, one slice at a time. Stir in tomatoes, basil, kosher salt, and white pepper; remove from heat; set aside.
  2. Sprinkle the chicken breast with salt and black pepper. Grill the chicken on your barbeque or in a grill skillet. When the chicken is done, place equal amounts of cheese on each breast and put the prepared sun-dried tomato sauce over the chicken breast.
