Petti di Pollo alla Bolognese
Chicken Breasts with Prosciutto and Cheese

Ingredients:

  • 4 chicken breasts, skinned and boned
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper, freshly ground
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 Tbs butter
  • 2 Tbs olive oil
  • 8 thin slices of prosciutto crudo*, cut into 2"x4" pieces
  • 8 thin slices Fontina cheese, cut into 2"x4" pieces
  • 2 Tbs Parmesan cheese, freshly grated
  • 2 Tbs chicken stock or brodo di carne

Directions:

  1. Cut the chicken breasts into 8 thin slices (if your chicken breasts have been frozen, slice the breast before they are 100% defrosted).
  2. Pound the chicken slices with the flat side of a meat mallet to flatten slightly.
  3. Mix the pepper into the flour.
  4. Dredge the chicken pieces into the flour, covering completely.
  5. In a large skillet heat the butter and olive oil over a medium-high heat.
  6. Cook the chicken slices until they turn light gold.
  7. In a shallow baking pan lay the chicken slices.
  8. Place a slice of prosciutto and then a slice of Fontina cheese on each piece of chicken.
  9. Dribble the chicken stock over the chicken slices.
  10. Sprinkle the Parmesan cheese over the chicken slices.
  11. Bake uncovered at 350F for 10 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and lightly browned.
  12. Serve at once.

*--Prosciutto is the Italian word for ham. There is prosciutto cotto and prosciutto crudo. The former is cooked ham and the latter is the cured ham that in the US is generally referred to as prosciutto.
