Chicken Manchester

(2 Votes)
15 Min

We used a novel English-style cheese studded with tangy cranberry and orange bits in our Chicken Manchester. It's sure to be received royally at your castle!

What You'll Need:
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/4 pound semi-soft English-style aged cheese with cranberry and orange, sliced
What To Do:
  1. Sprinkle both sides of chicken with salt and pepper.
  2. In a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, heat oil.  Add chicken; cook 5 minutes or until lightly browned. Turn chicken, and cook 6 minutes, or until no pink remains.
  3. Top each breast with 1 cheese slice. Cover pan and cook just until cheese melts. 
  • We used an English-style aged cheese with cranberries and oranges. If you can’t find this flavor, any semi-soft cheese with fruit will work great! 
  • If you liked this recipe, be sure to check out all of our cheesy favorites in The Cheese Lover's eCookbook: 34 Easy Recipes with Cheese.

I have never seen cheese with fruit added where would i get this ?

Hello! This will be found near the other specialty cheeses in your grocery store, usually in the deli or in a refrigerated case near the deli. We recommend asking someone in the store to help!
