Eat In. Grilled chicken with brie.

I'm not much of a red-meat person, so I end up eating a lot of chicken, which is fine. But chicken is one of those foods that needs jazzing up every once in a while--and brie is definitely the way to do it. Who knew, right? Combining good ole-fashioned chicken with sort of fancy but absolutely yummy brie cheese? It's delicious and, thankfully, easy too (thanks Food Network!).

2 chicken breast halves
Garlic and herb seasoning
about 4 slices Brie cheese
1/2 tablespoon olive oil
1 shallot, chopped
1 tablespoon vinegar
1 tablespoon honey
Fresh spinach leaves
A few slices bacon, cooked

Season the chicken with salt, pepper and the seasoning, and grill over medium heat. As that's cooking, fire up another pan over medium heat and saute the olive oil and shallots. Combine the vinegar, honey and salt and pepper in a small bowl, then add to the olive oil and stir together.

Arrange the spinach leaves as a salad on your plates and place the cooked chicken breasts on top. Put the brie slices on top of the chicken to melt, then pour the olive oil vinaigrette mixture on top. Crumble the bacon over the plate.

And enjoy! The kicker in this recipe is really the vinaigrette, which is sweet and goes perfectly with the brie.
