Pan-fried chicken with gorgonzola sauce is a delicious dish you can serve for dinner or lunch. Season the chicken breasts lightly with salt, pepper and oil, then grill them on a grill pan. They can also be fried in a pan with a thick bottom if you prefer it like that. I make the gorgonzola sauce separately – it is based on heavy cream, marinated green peppercorns, gorgonzola cheese and Parmesan cheese. Gorgonzola sauce is intensely peppery thanks to the addition of marinated peppercorns and coloured ground pepper. Chicken prepared like this can be served with gnocchi, potato dumplings, Silesian dumplings, boiled rice or mashed potatoes. This chicken in gorgonzola sauce is a quick lunch dish that tastes fantastic and is easy to make. I recommend the following recipe for chicken in gorgonzola sauce and I hope you will enjoy it.

How to make chicken in gorgonzola sauce.
Drain the green peppercorns from the pickling brine and crush them in a mortar. Put the butter and mashed garlic into a pot and fry for a few seconds. Following that, add the crushed peppercorns, coloured pepper, a pinch of salt, cream, then bring it to a boil and simmer for about 15 minutes. The cream should evaporate a little, which will give the sauce a creamier texture. Next add the crushed gorgonzola cheese and the grated Parmesan cheese. Stir continuously until the cheeses are completely dissolved, it may take about 4-5 minutes.
Clean the chicken breasts, rinse them under running water and dry with a paper towel. Subsequently, cut them lengthwise in half and rub them with a pinch of salt, pepper and oil. Put a grill pan on the heat and warm it up. Once the pan gets very hot, arrange the chicken breasts on it and grill them on both sides over a medium-high heat for about 8-10 minutes in total.
Serve the grilled chicken breasts with gorgonzola sauce, sprinkled with chopped parsley.
