Chicken Breasts with Ham and Cheese (Polla Alla Bolognese)

ingredients

serves 4
4 Chicken breasts, skinned and boned
25 g (1 oz) 4 Tbs Seasoned flour (flour with salt and pepper to taste)
50 g (2 oz) 4 Tbs Butter
8 slices Smoked ham, thinly sliced and cut a little smaller than the chicken
50 g (2 oz) 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, grated

method

1. Cut each chicken breast in half, crosswise. Place each piece between greaseproof or waxed paper and pound with a mallet to flatten.

2. Remove from the paper and coat with the seasoned flour, shaking off any excess.

3. Melt half the butter in a large frying-pan. Add the chicken pieces and fry for 10 to 15 minutes, or until they are lightly and evenly browned and cooked through.

4. Meanwhile, melt the remaining butter in a small saucepan. Remove from the heat.

5. Place a slice of ham on each chicken piece and sprinkle over about one-quarter of the grated cheese. Pour over the melted butter. Return the frying-pan to moderate heat, cover and cook the mixture for 3 to 4 minutes or until the cheese has melted.

6. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the chicken mixture to a warmed serving dish and serve at once, with the remaining cheese.
