1/1 Photo of Hazelnut Chicken With Pear Sauce & Blue Cheese
1 hr 15 mins
Chef George S.'s Note:
I had something similar in a restaurant, but it was deep fried and they used strawberry jam. This is my Oregon version of a generic recipe. If you don't care for blu cheese, feta works nicely. This can be served with a salad of tossed greens dressed with a vinagrette for a lunch or light dinner. Try a rose wine or a fruit flavored beer to accompany. Preparation time includes chill time.
