Chicken Voldostano

Elegant Chicken

Chicken Voldostano has to be one of my tastiest dishes. It is rich with the combined flavors of chicken, Fontina cheese and Prosciutto di Parma. Top this off with a nice Portobello mushrooms wine sauce and you will have created a dish that is elegant and delicious.

Fontina cheese, from the Aosta Valley, has a great earthy, mushroomy, woodsy flavor. It has a very pungent and intense flavor and pairs well with the saltiness of the Prosciutto. This combination of cheese and meat also works well on top of a pizza, veal, pork, beef and vegetables.

A nice Valpolicella or a Pinot Noir will pair well with this dish. These light fragrant table wines will truly enhance the favor and bring out the earth tones in the cheese and mushrooms.
