Add chanterelle mushrooms and continue sauteing until tender. Deglaze with white wine.
Chill and set aside.
In a medium mixing bowl add cool chanterelle mushroom mix, gorgonzola, basil, oregano, salt and black pepper. Fold together until incorporated. Chill and set aside for later use.
For the pan roasted chicken breast: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
With a boning knife, butterfly at 4 chicken breasts. Stuff each breast with 2 ounces of chanterelle mushroom-gorgonzola mix then tie with butchers twine to ensure that it stays together.
Season each chicken breast with salt and cracked black pepper.
