About this recipe: Chicken Valdostana is an Italian chicken recipe originally from the Val D'Aosta region of northern Italy. This is my version. It's absolutely delicious and impressive, yet quite easy to make!
Fontina is a mild but flavourful Italian cheese. In a pinch you can use Gruyère, Emmental or Edam instead.
This was VERY tasty. I used low-fat margarine; omitted mushrooms; added chopped basil and used provolone. This is just as good as any chicken dish from an Italian restaurant. If my too-picky husband liked it. - 27 Apr 2001 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Been looking for a recipe like this. Was intoduced to Fontina cheese in a hi-end Italian restaurant. This is an almost exact replica. Only thing I added was a dash of lemon juice. Fabulous. Had Ceasar salad and garlic mashed potatos with it, - 25 Oct 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I LOVE fontina cheese and this recipe uses it perfectly. This was fantastic, but next time I would probably only use 1/2 tsp. of the white pepper, it was a little too strong. Thanks for a "keeper" that I will definately be making again and again! - 28 Dec 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
