A great way to prepare chicken breast fillets which is fancy enough for company. It's wonderful made either with fontina or gruyere cheese.


Serves: 6 

  • 2 tablespoons plain flour
  • 6 skinless, boneless chicken breast fillets - pounded thin
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 10 fresh mushrooms, sliced
  • 3/4 cup (185ml) dry white wine
  • 3/4 cup (185ml) chicken stock
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground white pepper
  • 6 slices thinly sliced prosciutto
  • 6 slices fontina or gruyere cheese

Preparation:20min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:40min 

  1. Lightly flour chicken breasts, shaking off excess flour. In a large frypan over low heat, melt butter. 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 cheese. Return chicken to frypan and cook just until cheese melts. Transfer chicken to individual plates and top each with some of the mushroom sauce before serving.
