Chicken Scaloppini with Radicchio e Gorgonzola


Place the chicken breast slices in a resealable plastic bag and pound into 1/4” thick scaloppini.

Coat both sides of each scaloppini with Nick’s magic rub.

Coat the scaloppini with flour and shake off the excess.

In a nonstick skillet, bring the extra light olive oil to a sizzle over medium-high heat.

Add the scaloppini and cook for 2 minutes per side.

Remove the scaloppini and place on a waiting dish.

Dispose of the oil in the pan and add the extra virgin olive oil. Warm over medium heat.

Add garlic and onion, stir well, and cook for 2 minutes.

Add the browned pancetta and peas. Stir and cook for 1 minute.

Stir in the red pepper flakes and cook 1 minute

Add the parsley and thyme, stir, and cook 1 minute.

Add the brandy. Stir to dislodge the brown bits stuck at the bottom. Cook for 2 minutes.

Increase the heat to medium-high and add the chicken stock and whipping cream. Bring to a boil.

Add the chicken scaloppini, reduce heat to medium, and cook for 2 minutes until the scaloppini is reheated throughout

Remove the scaloppini and keep warm.

Add the radicchio to the sauce in the pan and cook for 2 minutes, stirring well.

Reduce heat to medium-low and add the crumbled gorgonzola. Stir well until the cheese has melted into the sauce.

Salt and pepper to your taste.
