    Serves: 4 

    • 1/4 cup (65ml) extra-virgin olive oil
    • 1.25 kg chicken breast cutlets, pounded to 1/2 cm thickness
    • 1 cup (125g) plain flour for dusting
    • 4 cloves garlic, chopped
    • 1 small onion, chopped
    • 3 tablespoons sun-dried tomatoes in oil, chopped
    • 3 slices prosciutto ham, finely chopped
    • 3/4 cup (190ml) good quality dry sherry wine
    • 1/2 cup (125ml) chicken stock
    • 2 egg yolks
    • 1/2 cup thickened cream
    • 2 tablespoons Brie cheese - rind removed, room temperature
    • 1 pinch salt and pepper to taste
    • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh parsley

    Preparation:45min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:1hour 

    1. Heat the olive oil in a large frypan over medium-high heat. Coat the chicken in flour, shaking off any excess. Fry chicken in the hot oil until brown on both sides. Remove from the frypan and set aside.
    2. Add the garlic, onion, sun-dried tomatoes and prosciutto to the frypan and reduce the heat to medium. Cook and stir for a few minutes, until garlic is fragrant and prosciutto is cooked. Stir in the sherry, loosening any bits stuck to the bottom of the pan. Simmer until reduced by half. Stir in the chicken stock and cook until reduced by half again.
    3. Whisk together the egg yolks and thickened cream; mix into the frypan. Season with salt and pepper. Return the chicken to the frypan and cook for a few minutes until chicken is coated and sauce is thick. Stir in the Brie cheese until smooth. Remove from the heat and sprinkle with parsley. Serve over rice or angel hair pasta.

    I made this recipe last weekend and it was very good. I had to use a lot more chicken stock that it called for though. It simmered down to very little liquid - perhaps simmer on lower heat? I ended up using one and half cup and still felt like it could have used a bit more sauce. It was very tasty though and I suspect I will make this again. My boyfriend loved it.  -  30 Nov 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This recipe is outstanding! I loved it. I made it with stone ground spagetti noodles to give it a nutty flavor. Fabulous!!!  -  25 Dec 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
