Congrats, guys! Let me know if I missed anyone. The winner will be chose on the last day of this month, so look out.

 

 

Are you still incredibly stuffed from Thanksgiving and 3 days worth of leftovers?

 

 

Tis’ the season for indulgence!

 

 

This tender chicken dish is topped with creamy gorgonzola and salty pancetta – the perfect combination.

 

 

I fried the pancetta and let it drain. You can buy pancetta and chop it, but most stores carry pre-chopped pancetta.

And dipped the chicken in some beaten egg, then dredged it through a bit of flour.

I added a few spices to my flour mixture – salt, pepper, smoked paprika – you can add whatever you’d like.

 

 

 

And just pan-fry until it is brown on each side.

After it has a nice golden brown color, reduce the heat a bit and allow it to cook through.

 

 

 

Top with a good 1/4 cup of gorgonzola, and once it melts, add the pancetta.

It is a very savory dish, and I think it’s goes best with a side of rice or a salad. It balances out the heaviness of the chicken.
