- 2 boneless skinless chicken breast halves
- 2 tsp olive oil
- thin slices Emmentaler or Gruyere cheese (about 1.5 oz total)
- 1 small pear, cored and cut into thin slices
- 1/4 C apple juice
- 1 Tbsp finely shredded fresh sage
2. In a medium skillet heat oil over medium heat. Add chicken; cook for 4 to 6 minutes or until chicken is tender and no longer pink, turning once. Transfer to two dinner plates; top with cheese. Cover and keep warm.
3. In the same skillet cook and stir pear slices for 2 to 3 minutes or just until tender. Add apple juice and sage. Bring to boiling, scraping up any crusty brown bits from bottom of skillet. To serve, spoon the pear mixture over chicken.
Robyn's notes: Good and quick. There were a few bites where the sage was a little strong, it's not a flavour everyone likes, but it was mostly well balanced. I used Gruyere (which it's been impossible to get for months, don't know how I lucked out this time) and the strength of the cheese against the sweet pear worked well.
*** 3 Stars: Good. At least one of us liked this enough for me to make it again, but not often
