Chicken Marsala with Gorgonzola

Chicken topped with melting Gorgonzola is quick enough for weeknight cooking but also elegant enough for a dinner party. We live near the Faribault, MN, caves that are used to age the lovely AmaBlu Gorgonzola cheese, so this is a favorite for us. —Jill Anderson, Sleepy Eye, Minnesota
