My mom likes to make this for family gatherings, and we all like to eat it. Marmalade and Gorgonzola might sound like an unusual combo, but they actually make a marvelous pair. —Yvette Gorman, Denver, Pennsylvania

  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup seasoned bread crumbs
  • 1 pound chicken tenderloins
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 cup orange marmalade, warmed
  • 1/4 cup crumbled Gorgonzola cheese


  1. In a shallow bowl, whisk egg and salt. Place bread crumbs in another shallow bowl. Dip chicken in egg, then in bread crumbs, patting to help coating adhere.
  2. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add chicken; cook 3-4 minutes on each side or until chicken is no longer pink. Drizzle with warm marmalade; top with cheese. Remove from heat; let stand, covered, until cheese begins to melt.
