    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.

      I made this for PAC 2012. We really liked this. Very tasty combo of sweet and salty. At first the pear sauce is surprising but the more bites you take the yummier it gets. The chicken was super tender and the hazelnuts made a nice crunchy crust. I love that its baked and not fried. I will make this again for sure.
