Grilled Chicken with Caramelized Onions & Gorgonzola Cream Sauce

Pin It

Ok, so the picture is awful. If you want a pretty one, go check out the one Dunne' took over on With a Cherry on Top - you'll see - it does look yummy! Here we go:

Wow. That is all I can say. If you only try one recipe listed on this blog, please let it be this one! This cream sauce is absolutely delicious. It honestly tastes like a super fancy dish that you'd order at some gourmet, high-end restaurant. But, nope! You can make this at home, and you should because it is so easy! The original recipe turns this into a sandwich. I decided against that (personal preference), and we just ate the chicken with the sauce poured over top (cutting out those extra carbs!). The sauce is so creamy - with a yummy tartness from the gorgonzola. 

4 chicken breasts
olive oil
1 large yellow onion, sliced
4 tablespoons butter
1 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup gorgonzola cheese (I used crumbled)

Preheat grill to med-high heat.  Season chicken with a little olive oil, salt and pepper to taste. Place on grill and cook for 7-8 minutes per side or until juices run clear.  Transfer to a plate and let rest. (We used our trusty Foreman - just perfect!)

In a large skillet, heat butter over medium heat.  Toss in sliced onions and saute brown and tender. Reduce heat to simmer and add in cream, stirring frequently.  Let it reduce by half and thicken up, about 5 minutes.  Stir in cheese until well-combined and melted in.

Place chicken on plate and pour sauce on top. Take a bite and enjoy!
