Chicken and Gorgonzola Cheese
Ingredients
1 1/2
pounds skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, cut crosswise into 1/2-inch slices
1/2
teaspoon salt
1/2
teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
3
tablespoons olive oil
8
ounces stemmed fresh cremini, shiitake, and/or button mushrooms, sliced
2
cups whipping cream
1
cup crumbled Gorgonzola cheese (4 ounces)
2/3
cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/4
cup snipped fresh Italian (flat-leaf) parsley
12
ounces dried pasta, cooked and drained
Directions
  1. Sprinkle chicken with 1/4 teaspoon of the salt and 1/4 teaspoon of the pepper.
  2. In a large nonstick skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of the oil over medium-high heat. Add half of the chicken; cook and stir until brown. Remove from skillet. Repeat with another 1 tablespoon oil and the remaining chicken; remove from skillet. Add the remaining 1 tablespoon oil and mushrooms. Cook for 5 to 8 minutes or until mushrooms are softened and liquid is evaporated, stirring occasionally.
  3. Return chicken to skillet; stir in cream. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Boil gently, uncovered, for 3 minutes. Stir in 1/2 cup of the Gorgonzola cheese, the Parmesan cheese, the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Cook and stir about 1 minute or until cheeses are melted.
  4. Add chicken mixture, the remaining 1/2 cup Gorgonzola cheese, and parsley to hot cooked pasta; toss gently to combine.
