DIRECTIONS

  • With a mallet, gently pound each chicken breast between waxed paper.
  • The breasts should be one inch thick.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Place one slice of proscuitto on top of each chicken breast.
  • With the back of your knife, tap the proscuitto lightly on the chicken breast.
  • This will make the proscuitto adhere to the chicken.
  • Preheat your 9" skillet with the oil until it becomes hot, not smokey.
  • Turn heat to medium/high.
  • Lay each piece of chicken, proscuitto side down, into the oiled pan.
  • Turn the heat down to medium.
  • Let it be.
  • Moving the chicken around will cause it to become tough.
  • Cook for 3- 4 minutes or until golden brown on one side.
  • Gently turn the chicken pieces over and continue to cook.
  • While the chicken is browning, add the tomato sauce to the pan.
  • Continue to cook the chicken in the tomato sauce for another 3- 4 minutes.
  • Sprinkle the flour into the tomato sauce.
  • The sauce will begin to thicken.
  • Once this side is golden brown, lay one slice of fontina cheese on top of each chicken breast.
  • Place the skillet into the preheated oven and cook for another 15 minutes.
  • Remove from oven, plate and serve with pasta, rice or lentils.
  • Serve with crusty Italian bread.
