Tuscan Grilled Chicken With Warm Gorgonzola Sauce

“This was a winner in the Paula Deen recipe round up in the Nov/Dec.2009 Cooking with Paula Deen contest. It was submitted by Radelle Knappenberger and cooked and judged by Paula Deen. This recipe features a creamy sauce over chicken and we used the extra sauce on a side of pasta as well. Warning capers are not for everyone. This sauce needs to really thicken and takes time so don't make it when you are in a rush. Weekend recipe for sure. Make the sauce first and when it is almost ready do the grilling. I know it is written the opposite here but it works better that way. If after these caveats you want to make it, do so. It is yummy. It is served over whole breasts but slicing the breasts and drizzling sauce disperses the sauce even more. It is up to you. Enjoy! ChefDLH”
