I made the recipe as written. It was creamy and looked nice but my family's taste wasn't for the bitter edge that came from the Gorgonzola and sage. This was our first experience with both. I'd like to try again with half mozzarella, a different herb and I like Melissa's idea of adding broccoli to lighten the whole experience.
Flavor was ok. I felt the sauce to be too runny. I added broccoli , and used half and half to cut the calories.
I made this recipe with 2 lbs. of chicken instead of one, only because I'd defrosted the chicken. Other than that, I made it exactly as written and it was delectable. It was loved by everyone in the house! WIll definitely make again.
My guy loved it!!
I enjoyed this. I used leftover chicken (already cooked), fresh basil, garlic and just a fraction of the gorgonzola. I used a little Feta too. This recipe would be good with or without chicken.
