We live near the Faribault, Minnesota caves that are used to age the lovely Amableu Gorgonzola cheese. Chicken topped with melting Gorgonzola is quick enough for weeknight cooking but also elegant enough for a dinner party. —Jill Anderson, Sleepy Eye, Minnesota

"My boyfriend found this recipe and made it for himself while I was out of town. He raved about it and said he was going to force me to try it. I've had other chicken marsala's before and haven't liked them. Well he made me try it tonight and I don't think I've ever had a better chicken dish in my life. Simply amazing. So savory and just delicious! He is allergic to gorgonzola cheese so be used a really good fresh parmesan instead. Spectacular! I'm super impressed."
