Ingredients

2 ounces bacon fat

1 tablespoons garlic, minced

1 tablespoons shallot, minced

2 ounces yellow onion, minced

4 ounces chanterelle mushrooms

1/2 cup white wine

4 ounces gorgonzola blue cheese

1 tablespoon basil, chopped

1/2 tablespoon oregano, chopped

Kosher salt, to taste

Cracked black pepper, to taste

For the pan roasted chicken breast:

2 (12-ounce) Airline chicken breasts, split into 4, skin on

1 teaspoon kosher salt

1 teaspoon cracked black pepper

8 ounces chanterelle mushroom-gorgonzola mix

2 ounces canola oil

Directions

  1. For the chanterelle mushroom-gorgonzola stuffing: In a medium hot saute pan add the bacon fat and saute garlic, shallot and onions until translucent.
  2. Add chanterelle mushrooms and continue sauteing until tender. Deglaze with white wine.
  3. Chill and set aside.
  4. 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.
  5. For the pan roasted chicken breast: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  6. With a boning knife, butterfly 4 chicken breasts. Stuff each breast with 2 ounces of chanterelle mushroom-gorgonzola mix then tie with butcher's twine to ensure that it stays together.
