This is a blend of aspects I liked from multiple recipes I tried. It's absolutely delish and melts in your mouth.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Put breasts on cutting board, lay plastic wrap over and pound until 1/4 inch thick.
  2. Put flour, salt & pepper in shallow dish; mix.
  3. Heat oil over medium heat in large skillet. When oil is hot, dredge both sides of chicken in flour mix, shaking off excess. Put in pan and fry for 5 minutes each side until golden. Remove chicken to plate.
  4. Lower heat and add prosciutto/pancetta to drippings left in pan, sauté for 1 minute.
  5. Add onion and garlic, sauté 2 minutes.
  6. Add mushrooms and sauté until nicely browned, about 5 minutes. Add pepper to taste.

yum! I also used bacon, and I diced the chicken, simply because we prefer it that way. Lovely sauce, succulent chicken, didn't take long to prepare for an excellent dinner, served over rice. Thank you, keort, this dish was made for I Recommend tag game.

Awesome. We had to substitute ordinary bacon for prosciutto, but if that hurt anything, the dish survived nicely. Made for PAC Spring 2013.
