Chicken with Pears and Blue Cheese Recipe

2012/04/24 by Varga László

Ingredients (2 persons):

  • 300 g chicken breast
  • 1 large aromatic pear
  • 50 g blue cheese
  • 10-15 almonds
  • 100 g butter
  • salt to taste
  • 1 teaspoon hot paprika
  • a bunch of ramsons (wild garlic) leaves for garnishing (optional)

Preparation method:

  1. Wash the chicken breast and cut them into two slices.
  2. Slice thinly the pear.
  3. Rub salt and hot paprika on both sides of the chicken slices.
  4. Heat the butter in a pan and fry slightly the chicken on both sides over medium-high heat.
  5. Remove the chicken from the pan and braise slightly the pear slices on both sides in the same pan.
  6. In an ovenproof dish place the chicken slices, covered by the pear slices then the blue cheese and the chopped almonds.
  7. Roast in in the prehheated oven for 10-15 minutes until the cheese is melted a bit.
  8. Serve with some greens as side dish, I used some freshly and roughly cut ramsons (wild garlic) leaves, since spring it is their season.

    This looks delicious, i’m one of very few people (i think) who love Blue Cheese so I think I will enjoy this dish a lot.

      English Muffins are a staple at our house for bkasrfaet. Mine usually end up “southwestern” style with some cheese, green chiles and egg. Hubby likes his with butter and honey. Either way it is a great starter. This recipe will be a keeper. Love the spinach idea!
