6 servings


  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

  • 6 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves - pounded thin

  • ¼ cup unsalted butter

  • 10 fresh mushrooms, sliced

  • ¾ cup dry white wine

  • ¾ cup chicken stock

  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground white pepper

  • 6 slices thinly sliced prosciutto

  • 6 slices fontina cheese


  1. Lightly flour chicken breasts, shaking off excess flour. In a large skillet over low heat, melt butter/margarine. Add chicken and saute until lightly browned, about 2 minutes each side. Remove with slotted spatula and set aside.

  2. Increase heat to medium low. Add mushrooms and saute until juices are rendered, about 4 minutes. Add wine and simmer until reduced by 1/4, about 3 to 4 minutes. Increase heat to medium high. Add stock, parsley and pepper and simmer until sauce reduced to 1 cup, about 10 minutes.

  3. Reduce heat to low. Top each chicken breast with a slice of prosciutto and a slice of fontina cheese. Return chicken to skillet and cook just until cheese melts. Transfer chicken to individual plates and top each with some of the mushroom sauce before serving.
