Ready In:




  • 1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Melt 1/4 cup butter; set aside.
  • 2. In a bowl, combine the remaining 1/2 cup butter with flour, using the back of a fork or a pastry blender to mix until creamy.
  • 3. Rinse chicken and pat dry. Cut each piece of chicken in half. Coat chicken with bread crumbs, pressing firmly. Drizzle coated chicken with melted butter; grill or broil for about 5 minutes per side or until fully cooked. Keep chicken warm while you make the sauce.
  • 4. In a large ovenproof skillet, bring stock to a boil; whisk in butter-flour mixture. Bring to a boil and cook, stirring, until mixture thickens. Reduce to a simmer. Add mushrooms, broccoli, prosciutto, garlic, red pepper flakes, lemon juice and wine. Simmer 5 minutes.
  • 5. Place cooked chicken pieces in sauce; sprinkle cheese on top of each chicken piece, dividing evenly. Place in oven and bake just until cheese melts, 3 to 4 minutes.
  • 6. Lift chicken onto plates; use a slotted spoon to ladle vegetables over cheese. Pour sauce over all; serve immediately.
  • Note: If using fresh broccoli, cut florets and steam or microwave just until crisp-tender. If using frozen broccoli spears or florets, thaw and drain well.
  • Tester's note: The sauce may be started about 30 minutes ahead. Prepare as directed, but do not add mushrooms and broccoli. Just before serving, add vegetables and simmer until hot, about 7 minutes.

  1. The restaurant is fabulous, and this recipe is DIVINE! I use extra mushrooms. I also use a meat tenderizer unit ( mine is a Chef Master by Intertek) but you could pound the chicken as well to make more consistent size pieces. I made the sauce on the stove, and cooked the chicken in my Sharper Image SuperWave Oven (New Wave Oven is another brand). I transferred the sauce to a pan that fit in my SuperWave oven, placed cooked chicken in the sauce & covered with cheese and turned unit to high for about 1 minute til the cheese was browned lightly and bubbly. I served it with roasted new potatoes & green beans (drizzled with olive oil, garlic & rosemary) and my husband and I both thought it was the best meal we ever cooked at home! Do NOT MISS THIS RECIPE!!!
  2. This is the most delicious chicken on the planet! I love Rich n Charlies and especially the chicken emil! Everyone should try this!
