This one is a 3-4 star dish in reality. As other reviewers noted it is rather bland, relying on the granny smith and blue cheese for flavor. The granny smith is critical for that strong, tart contrasting flavor. The subtle celery flavor was a nice texture addition. I followed the recipe only adding some broth to the celery/apple/shallot saute to keep the pan scrapings incorporated (used a cast iron skillet). It was a nice flavor all in all and plated beautifully (mine would have plated much nicer had I used a non stick skillet). I think next time seasoning the chicken a little more with perhaps some onion powder? and using the red onion option (vs. the shallots) for some color would be a nice change.

The taste was just outstanding! I didn't want the blue cheese sauce to go to waste so I served it over some bowtie pasta. This is restaurant quality and ridiculously easy. I thought this had plenty of flavor but then again I was liberal with the salt and plenty of fresh cracked pepper.


What interesting flavours! I am going to have to look at more of your recipes!
