I know I have been missing in action for a bit. Things have been crazy and really I have just been cooking some of our favorite recipes and not trying a lot of new stuff lately. However when ever there is a potluck or reason for me to bring some food I tend to try new dishes to see how they turn out. This Bacon Gorgonzola Chicken Salad that I found over at Picky Palate was one of those.
Since I first made it I have made it at least 3 more times and every time it has been a hit. If you are short on time stop by your local grocery store and pick up a rotisserie chicken to make things even quicker. I baked a few chicken breasts seasoned with salt and pepper and then shredded it up since I had the time and the chicken already.
If you are worried about the gorgonzola over powering this chicken salad, don’t be. That was one of the things that I liked the best about it, there was just enough flavor from the gorgonzola without it taking over. Even my husband who is not a fan loved this recipe so give it a try and you might be surprised!
