DIRECTIONS

  • Sprinkle the breast halves with salt and pepper.
  • Heat 2 tablespoons butter in a heavy skillet large enough to hold the chicken in one layer over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and brown lightly on one side. Turn and continue cooking about 5 minutes or until cooked through. Remove the pieces and keep warm.
  • Meanwhile. Heat the remaining 1 tablespoon of butter in a saucepan and add the flour, stirring rapidly with a wire whisk. Add the broth and milk, and continue stirring rapidly. Add the cream and cook, stirring often, about 5 minutes. Add the cheese and stir until melted.
  • Add the ham slices to the skillet in which the chicken pieces cooked and saute briefly on both sides just enough to heat through. Transfer the slices to a heated serving dish and cover each slice with a piece of chicken breast.
  • Add the onion to the skillet and cook, stiffing until wilted. Add the wine and stir to dissolve the brown particles that cling to the bottom and sides of the skillet. Stir in the cheese sauce.
  • Place a sieve over a small saucepan and strain the sauce, stirring and pushing down with a plastic spatula to press through as much of it as possible. There should be about 1 1/3 cups of sauce.
  • Pour the sauce over the chicken pieces and serve hot.
