For the Chicken Patties:

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

For the Toppings:

  • 4 ounces Gorgonzola cheese, crumbled
  • 2 ripe pears, cut into 1/2-inch thick slices
  • Mixed greens or arugula
  • 1 red onion, thinly sliced

For the Sauce:

  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • 4 artisan buns, split and toasted
  • Butter or olive oil for toasting


Grilled Pears:

  1. Preheat your grill or grill pan over medium heat.
  2. Brush the pear slices lightly with olive oil and grill for 2-3 minutes on each side until they have nice grill marks and are slightly softened. Set aside.

Chicken Breasts:

  1. Season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper.
  2. Heat a grill pan over medium-high heat and brush with olive oil.
  3. Cook the chicken for 5-6 minutes on each side, or until the internal temperature reaches 165°F (75°C) and the juices run clear. Let them rest for a few minutes, then slice if desired to fit the buns better.

Gorgonzola Cheese:

  1. While the chicken is still warm, top with crumbled Gorgonzola so it starts to melt from the residual heat.

Honey-Dijon Sauce:

  1. In a small bowl, whisk together mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, honey, and season with salt and pepper to create a smooth sauce.


  1. Spread a thin layer of the honey-Dijon sauce on the bottom half of each toasted bun.
  2. Place the mixed greens or arugula on the sauce.
  3. Add the warm sliced chicken breast topped with melting Gorgonzola.
  4. Lay the grilled pear slices atop the cheese.
  5. Add the red onion slices for a hint of sharpness.
  6. Spread another layer of the honey-Dijon sauce on the top half of the bun before placing it on top of the burger.


  • Serve this Chicken Burger with Gorgonzola and Grilled Pear immediately while the cheese is softly melted and the pears are warm. Pair it with sweet potato fries or a balsamic-dressed side salad for a complete gourmet experience.
