    Directions

    For the chicken breasts:
    In a large saucepan, heat the extra-virgin olive oil and saute the onions for a minute, or until soft. Add the rosemary and chicken to the pan. Season the chicken with salt and pepper, and cook for a few minutes on each side, or until it is fully cooked and starts to brown. Finish cooking the chicken by adding the wine at the very end to deglaze the pan.

    For the Zucca sauce:

    In a large saucepan, heat the extra-virgin olive oil and saute the onions for a minute, or until soft. Add the butternut squash, and cook for 5 minutes, or until tender. Add the vegetable stock, and salt and pepper, to taste, and let reduce. Stir in the gorgonzola cheese until it is fully melted in the sauce.

    Transfer the chicken breasts to a warm plate, generously spooning the zucca sauce all over. Serve immediately.

      I cooked this for a dinner party, everyone loved it! One guest, a 12 year old child who is very picky, went back for seconds! Can not understand why anyone would dis this recipe, unless it did not satisfy their taste, or they used poor quality ingredients... I would recommend this recipe to all my friends who can cook.

      This was a great dish. My family loved it. Easy to prepare and the gorgonzola tasted great with the squash. Looking forward to making it again.

      this was disgusting. All the time given for cooking was off. The squash and the cheese did not fit together. I threw the sauce in the garbage disposal and will attempt to feed the chicken to my pets. Don't waste your money!
