Dont worry if it looks like some of the Gorgonzola disappeared in the oven. It actually soaks into the chicken, keeping it moist and enriching its flavor.
Ingredients: 2 1/2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar,4 chicken breast halves with skin and bones (about 2 1/2 pounds total),1/4 pound chilled Gorgonzola dolce, sliced,1 tablespoon vegetable oil,1/3 cup water
Instructions: Preheat oven to 425°F with rack in middle.,Pat chicken dry, then cut a deep 3-inch-long pocket horizontally in long curved side of each chicken breast half. Fill each pocket with one quarter of cheese. Season chicken all over with 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper.,Heat oil in an ovenproof 12-inch heavy skillet over medium-high heat until it shimmers. Place chicken, skin side down, in skillet and cook, undisturbed, until golden brown, about 4 minutes. Turn breasts over, then place skillet in oven and bake until just cooked through, 20 to 25 minutes. Transfer chicken to a platter.,Return skillet to burner (handle will be very hot) and add water and vinegar.
