Capricorn Goats Cheese Recipe – Ethel’s Farmhouse Chicken

June 26, 2012

I often talk to a goat on twitter, Ethel the Goat who is one of the goats who make Capricorn Goats Cheese. I was quite excited when she invited me to take part in the #CapricornChallenge. The rules were simple, Ethel sent me a gorgeous hamper filled with goodies including Capricorn Somerset Goats Cheese and I had to take up the challenge to create some recipes and blog about them. I thought this was baa-rilliant and couldn’t wait to take up the challenge.

Capricorn Goats Cheese HamperAs you can see from the hamper there were more than enough ingredients to provide inspiration and I came up with a number of different recipes that I will be sharing with you. I have to say that Capricorn Goats Cheese is delicious and it is very tempting to eat it as it is, but I resisted.

The first recipe that I came up with was a chicken with tomato, orange pepper tomato and goats cheese sauce which I have called Ethel’s Farmhouse Chicken for lack of a better name.



  1. Cook the chicken breasts slowly in a griddle pan, making sure they are cooked though. This should take at least 20 minutes.
  2. In a frying pan add the olive oil and sauté the garlic. Add the yellow pepper and tomatoes and warm though.
  3. Add the cider and the chicken stock to the pan and cook until it reduces by half.
  4. Stir in the goats cheese gently until it melts.

Serve the chicken on a plate with the sauce poured on the top. You can add a sprinkle of black pepper if you like that.  The chicken dish would be nice served with rice and a salad or new potatoes.

I was very pleased with this recipe, the cider merged well with the tomatoes and yellow pepper and the goats cheese added a mellow creamy flavour to the whole dish. The whole family enjoyed the meal, even my husband who can be a bit suspicious of new recipes.
