Once upon a time there was... Pasta with Chicken and Gorgonzola Sauce

This will be a pretty quick post because it's a pretty quick meal.  This is a nice dish to make for a weeknight.  Its simple and has a very different taste from your average pasta with chicken meal.  If you like the gorgonzola, you will like this.

(serves 2)
pasta ingredients
3 Tbsp butter
2 Tbsp crumbled gorgonzola cheese
1 green onion, minced
1 clove garlic, minced
4 oz pasta
salt and pepper to taste

chicken ingredients
8 oz chicken breast
1 egg
1/2 c bread crumbs
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 Tbsp butter
1/4 c parmesan cheese
1 tsp garlic powder


1. prepare the chickens. cut chicken into 1" chunks. Whisk egg into a shallow dish. Combine bread crumbs, parmesan, and garlic powder in another shallow dish. Dip chicken in egg then coat with crumb mixture.

Now your chickens will look like this:

2. cook your pasta according to package directions.
Cornelius' tip: we like to measure our pasta. 2 oz (uncooked) is a serving.

3. cook your chickens. heat oil and butter in a frying pan. Add chicken and cook, flipping as necessary, until golden.

4. make sauce. When the chicken and pasta are almost done, combine onion, gorgonzola, garlic, and butter in a small saucepan. Cook over medium-low, until ingredients are heated and combined. Add salt and pepper to taste.

5. combine sauce and pasta. top with chicken.

pig, out.
