Chicken Pinocchio

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Judikins

One of the chefs in a local Italian Ristorante developed this recipe for his customers and it is "died and gone to heaven" delicious. It can easily be doubled for more than two. It has all my favorite foods in it and can be served with a green salad and choice wine to make you and your guests want it again and again!

OMG! This is the BEST chicken recipe!! It's not low in fat but YES I died and went to heaven. I didn't have gorganzola so I used Blue Cheese, also I tripled the recipe and put it over pasta. I will make it at my next dinner party, people will love it!
