Peruvian for dinner tonight?

I have another recipe to share from my Peruvian dinner outing

This is perfect for dinner this weekend. 

Organic Chicken Breast with Honey Blue Cheese Sauce

For the chicken breasts:
4 whole organic chicken breasts 
2 cloves of garlic, chopped
Touch of olive oil 
Salt and pepper (to taste)

For the saikio miso sauce:
2 cups honey
2 cups apple vinegar
8 tbs aji amarillo paste
3 cups saikio miso paste
1/2 cup olive oil 

For the honey blue cheese sauce:
1 cup honey 
1 lb blue cheese
1 1/4 cup apple vinegar 

For the vegetables:
Root vegetables (fresh veggies of the day such as baby carrots, potatoes, etc)
5 tbs olive oil
Salt and pepper (to taste)
2 tbs pure honey (for glaze)
2 tbs butter (for glaze)

Chicken Breasts:Marinate the chicken breasts with salt, pepper, chopped garlic and touch of olive oil. Grill them until cooked and golden brown. 

Saikio Miso Sauce:In a pot, mix the honey, apple vinegar, aji amarillo paste, saikio miso paste and olive oil until sauce boils. Cool down.

Honey Blue Cheese Sauce:Blend the blue cheese, apple vinegar and honey in a blender. Season the root vegetables with salt, pepper and olive oil. Roast them in the oven at 300°F for 20-35 minutes. Glaze with honey and butter. The smaller the vegetables or vegetable pieces, the faster they will cook.

To Serve:Top each chicken breast with one tablespoon of honey blue cheese sauce then place on the roasted vegetables. Final touch, add the saikio miso sauce to the chicken.

Serve with Quinoa. 

Serves 4.  Que Rico!
