Reviews for Cranberry-Gorgonzola Stuffed Chicken
"Love this recipe!!! Not a fan of Gorgonzola so we use goat cheese instead. So good. Even my twin 2 year olds and my 5 year old ate it all up! My daughter asked if she could dip hers in honey so I tried a few bites like that as well. Also really good. Especially with the goat cheese."
"Excellent roulade. Beautiful & festive presentation. Sometimes I'll sub goat cheese for the gorgonzola. Almost any nuts could be used in this dish. Next time, I might add thyme &/or oregano. I also make a basalmic-chicken broth reduction sauce. This dish is great with cherries as a sub for cranberries. I use Italian cherries, "Ciliegie di'Vignola", jarred cherries in vodka, for the filling & for the sauce."
"These were very tasty!"
"It was just ok. Maybe I need to reduce the amount of gorgonzola cheese next time."
"Made these for Christmas dinner... These were worth the work it took to put them together. My whole family raved about them!"
"I found this extremely difficult to put together. Once the chicken is rolled up, it's very hard to "roll" in the flour or "dip" in the egg. Mine was a mess."
"These things are drop dead delish! Just go light on the Gorgonzola."
"Going to make tonight with feta instead of gorgonzola."
