Chicken with Stilton and Grilled Pears
Believe it or not, I got this recipe out of a diet cook book! O_O I've been cooking out of this book quite a bit for the last few weeks, as Dave and I are trying to eat more healthy.. and I have been trying to adjust my cooking style from heavy cream and butter, without sacrificing quality for crap diet recipes designed for people who are trying to break themselves from McDogfood.
So far every recipe I've tried has been very good.. although I think I might get burnt out of tomatoes soon! ;-) This one, thankfully.. didnt call for a single tomato.. AND... I got to use blue cheese. The original recipe calls for Roquefort.. but I had Stilton on hand... so that is what I used. =)
I also roasted some acorn squash since it looks so yummy and tempting sitting there in produce.. just saying.. "eat me! eat me!"..... what? Squashes dont talk to you?
Anyhoo.. this is a modification of the original, & scaled down for 2.. but still just as healthy! =)
1 large chicken breast, cut in half
2 T Stilton
.5 C fat free yogurt
a quarter of a red onion, diced
1 scallion, chopped
ground white pepper
1 pear, cut into 6 slices
For the sauce, combine yogurt, onion, scallion, white pepper, and Stilton in a small bowl. Set aside.
Cover the sliced pear with lemon juice.
Salt and pepper the chicken breast and grill until cooked, adding the pears to the grill once the chicken is about half way done.
Serve with the Stilton sauce spooned over top of the chicken and pears and enjoy! =)
