CHICKEN BREAST WITH PROSCIUTTO AND MELTED CHEESE RECIPE

Prep: 10 min; Cook: 10 min - Easy
Serves
4

Quick and easy as well as tasty and satisfying.
  • 4 chicken breasts, trimmed and cut in half
  • 2 TBSP unsalted butter
  • 4 thin slices of prosciutto
  • 1 - 2 cups grated or 4 slices thinly-sliced cheese: groviera (Gruyere), or fontina, Emmentaler, Jarlsberg, Swiss, raclette
  • 1/2 cup white wine (optional for de-glaze)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
OO Skillet large enough to hold the fillets (best if you can cook and serve all at once).

MELT the butter in the skillet on low-medium heat. Add the chicken fillets, lightly brown both sides - about 2 minutes each.

TURN again (so the hot side is up), lay on a piece of prosciutto and add the cheese.

THE dish is ready when the cheese starts to melt down into the buttery pan - about 3 more minutes.

SERVE, pouring remaing juices over fillets.
