I found myself with pears that were ripening before I could eat them. Once I got down to my last two I came up with a dinner idea. I would cook the pears with chicken breast.
I originally intended to use the chicken for masala but that could wait. I needed to cook the pears. I wanted to create something both sweet and savory. I started with bacon.
Four boneless skinless chicken breast
1/4 lb of bacon
Himalayan sea salt
Fresh ground pepper
Bleu cheese crumbles
I started by cutting a quarter pound of bacon into pieces and frying it down.
While the bacon was cooking, I peeled and chopped my pears. I also seasoned my chicken on both sides with salt and pepper.
Once the bacon was done, I removed the bacon from the pan. I then cooked the chicken in the bacon fat.
The chicken was thin and only took a few minutes on each side. I removed the cooked chicken from the pan and drained the fat.
Next I returned the chicken to the pan with the pears
The pears will make a syrup.
Lastly I add the bacon back into the pan along with thyme.
When ready to serve, I sprinkled with Bleu cheese crumbles. It was delicious 😋
