Liven up ordinary chicken breasts with mustard, basil, prosciutto and cheese. It goes from stovetop to tabletop in 30 minutes.

Ingredients

1
tablespoon vegetable oil
4
boneless, skinless chicken breast halves (about 1 1/4 pounds)
4
teaspoons Dijon mustard
4
thin slices prosciutto or fully cooked ham
1/4
cup shredded mozzarella cheese (1 ounce)
4
fresh basil leaves

Directions

  • 1 Heat oil in 10-inch skillet over medium heat. Cook chicken in oil 6 minutes. Turn chicken; brush with mustard and top with prosciutto. Cook 6 to 8 minutes longer or until juice of chicken is no longer pink when centers of thickest pieces are cut.
  • 2 Sprinkle cheese over chicken. Cook about 2 minutes or until cheese is melted. Garnish with basil.
Tips  

Boneless, skinless chicken breast halves vary considerably in size. For this recipe, select ones that are about 5 ounces each. Be sure that they are all the same size so they cook in the same amount of time.

Serve this Italian-style dish with steamed green beans and warm breadsticks. Italian gelato and biscotti for dessert keep with the Italian theme.
