Equipment

  • heavy pan like a Le Creuset that can go from stovetop to oven
  • Large tongs

Ingredients

  • 2 chicken breasts bone in
  • 2/3 cup Gorgonzola cheese
  • 2 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
  • 2 tbsp all purpose flour
  • 2 tbsp cherry preserves
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • sea salt
  • black pepper
  • 1 tsp dried thyme

Instructions

  • Slice a pocket into the chicken breast
  • In a small bowl, combine Gorgonzola and mayonnaise, mashing with a fork
  • Season chicken inside and out generously with sea salt and pepper
  • Stuff chicken with Gorgonzola mixture
  • Preheat oven to 425°
  • Combine corn starch, flour, sea salt, pepper and thyme
  • dip chicken in buttermilk and then dredge in flour mixture
  • discard extra buttermilk and flour
  • Heat a heavy pot and add olive oil
  • Sear chicken, roughly 4 minutes a side
  • Place entire pan in preheated oven and bake for 25-30 minutes
  • Remove pan from oven and set chicken breasts aside. Some of the mixture will have melted into the pan. This is fine. It adds to the flavor of the sauce.
  • Mix the preserves and balsamic vinegar in a small bowl and stir into pan
  • Bring mixture to a low simmer, stirring constantly until it thickens, adding enough chicken broth to deglaze the pan
  • Pour the sauce over the chicken breasts and halve before serving

Notes

I'd like to wish everyone a happy New Year.   Our home construction project is finally completed and aside from a few finishing touches, we are done....which means....
It's time to get back to it.
So here is my first recipe for the New Year.  I hope you enjoy it as much as we did!
xoxo,
