Gorgonzola Smothered Chicken with Pancetta.
Thanks to all for playin’ a very tricky Trivia Friday!

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.
Gorgonzola Smothered Chicken with Pancetta
- 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 1 cup flour
- 1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 cup crumbled gorgonzola
- 1/2 cup chopped pancetta, fried
- Heat a skillet on medium-high heat and add 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Beat 2 eggs in a large bowl, and add 1 cup of flour (+ paprika, salt and pepper) to a large plate. Dip the chicken in the egg, the dredge through the flour. Add to the skillet and let brown on both sides.
- Once chicken is cooked through, add 1/4 cup gorgonzola on each breast, and allow to melt. Remove from pan and transfer to plate. Sprinkle about 1/8 cup of pancetta of top.

I love the trivia. It’s the best part of Friday’s! Well close to the best part.
Yaaay!! I’m thankful that I made the cut, haha :-D
Phew. Good thing you accepted MacArthur! :-D
Smothered chicken looks so yum!
You need a cookbook/restaurant or something. I sent your blog link to my mom.. hope thats cool :) lol. She loves to cook and I know would enjoy a lot of your recipes (as do I, of course but I have to tweak some of em).
I freaking missed Friday trivia.. ahhh. Next week I gotta be more on the ball!
yay for qualifying!! & that looks really good
That looks tasty! I love recipes with gorgonzola. I’m sort of a sucker for it.
Yum, the PERFECT Italian meal! looks fantastic, my grandmother would be proud :) Too bad I don’t cook like that! I will one day, when I get a bigger kitchen and I have more room for stuff, you know? Now it’s so hard, I can barely fit anything in my kitchen, and Nick and I can’t even cook together, so sad.
The chicken is packed with yummy flavors! Sounds delicious!
Dairy, poultry, & pork. All in one post! Let me call my husband :)
Anyhooo girl, I am grateful for our friendship and love your recipes, even if I cant always eat them.
BTW, are you a certified personal trainer? Totally random change of topic there. I am off to cruise your bio/about me b/c I am thinking of getting mine…not sure if im gonna go NASM, ACSM, or ACE. If you have yours, any 411 you can provide, the better. I have my RYT-200 for Yoga but would like to get my certif perso trainer credential too. Sorta for fun, sorta for practical reasons. The more holistic and less meathead-ish, the better :)

Looks good. Also looks easy! Surprised I didn’t think of this! :-)
i really wish you liked another cheese, gorgonzola makes me wanna barf ;)
Did a quicker version, just seasoned chicken tenderloins with salt, pepper, and smoked paprika, sauteed until done, put them in a hot cast iron skillet topped with a mixture of gorgonzola, goat cheese, toasted pine nuts, and pancetta, and put in the oven at 450F for a few minutes. Tasty.
