A note about serious food allergies

Gouda turns everything that was just "fine" to "goud," with its smoky notes and rich flavor. It brings its "goudness" to this fondue sauce, which in turn brings out the best from the succulent chicken. In fact, we'll rank this dinner one click beyond "goud" into "great."

  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Trim bottom end from broccolini.

    Zest and halve lemon. Cut one half into wedges and juice the other half.

    Mince chives.

    Peel and halve shallot. Slice thinly.

    Finely chop almonds.

    Combine almonds and 1 tsp. lemon zest in a mixing bowl. Set aside.

    Combine 1 tsp. lemon juice and garlic oil in another mixing bowl. Set aside.

    Pat chicken breasts dry, and season both sides with a pinch of salt and pepper.

  2. 2

    Roast the Broccolini

    Place broccolini and shallot on prepared baking sheet and toss with 2 tsp. olive oil, 1/4 tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper. Massage oil and seasoning into broccolini.

    Spread into a single layer and roast in hot oven until lightly charred, 12-15 minutes.

    Drizzle roasted broccolini with lemon-garlic oil mixture. Top with almond-lemon zest mixture.

    While broccolini roasts, cook chicken.

  3. 3

    Cook the Chicken

    Place a medium non-stick pan over medium heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil.

    Add chicken breasts to hot pan and cook until browned and chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 5-7 minutes per side.

    Return pan used to cook chicken to medium heat. Combine 1/4 cup water and cream cheese in hot pan and bring to a simmer, stirring often.

    Once simmering, cook until cream cheese is mostly melted, 1-2 minutes.

    Stir in smoked Gouda cheese, one torn piece at a time, until sauce is smooth. If too thick, add water, 1 tsp. at a time, until desired texture is reached.

    Remove from burner and stir in chives and a pinch of salt.
