Chicken breasts baked with prosciutto and Fontina cheese. A delicious dish that can be served with a green salad, mashed potatoes and Italian bread.
Preparation time: 10 minutes, Cooking time: 20 minutes, Serves: 4
4 chicken breasts, skinned and boned
1/2 cup flour
Freshly ground black pepper
2 Tbsp olive oil
1 Tbsp butter
8 thin slices of prosciutto, cut into 2x4 inch pieces
8 thin slices of Fontina cheese, cut into 2x4 inch pieces
2 Tbsp chicken stock
4 Tbsp Parmesan cheese, freshly grated
Cut each chicken breast into half to make 8 slices total. Put each chicken piece between two layers of plastic wrap and with the flat side of a meat mallet or a rolling pin, pound the chicken slices so that they flatten slightly.
Mix the black pepper into the flour and dredge the chicken pieces into the mixture, covering completely on both sides.
In a large skillet heat the butter and olive oil over a medium to high heat. Cook the chicken pieces on both sides until they turn light gold. Lay the chicken pieces in a shallow baking pan and then lay prosciutto and cheese slices over each piece of chicken. Drizzle the chicken stock and sprinkle the parmesan cheese over the chicken.
Bake at 350F for 10 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and lightly browned.
Serve immediately. For a complete meal, serve with mashed potatoes, a green salad and Italian bread.
