Blue Cheese Chicken Recipe

My favorite blue cheese to use in this Blue Cheese Chicken recipe is Gorgonzola. Serve the chicken and sauce alone or over pasta. I also like to serve Blue Cheese Chicken with a side of sauteed greens, like spinach or Swiss chard.

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 35 minutes

Total Time: 50 minutes

Yield: 4 servings


  • 2 chicken breasts (at least 1/2 lb. each)
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1/3 cup white wine
  • 2/3 cup crumbled blue cheese (about 4 oz)
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1 Tbsp finely chopped Italian parsley


Preheat oven to 375

Slice each chicken breast lengthwise through the middle, creating two thin chicken breasts from the original breast.

In an ovenproof saucepan, heat olive oil over medium heat. Sear the chicken, cooking three minutes on each side. Add the wine and turn the heat to low, simmering for 8-10 minutes until wine has reduced by half. Add cheese, cream and parsley. Simmer another minute then put the pan in the oven for 10-15 minutes. Sauce will continue to reduce and become thicker.
