Pounding chicken breasts helps them cook evenly. A quick sauté keeps them moist. Due to the size of the pounded chicken, you'll need to use an extra-large skillet or to cook the chicken in two batches.

Ingredients

4 (6-oz) boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1/2teaspoon salt
Coarsely ground black pepper
Grated rind of 1 lemon
Chopped fresh thyme
1/2cup grated Parmigiano Reggiano cheese
4 slices prosciutto ham
1tablespoon olive oil
1tablespoon butter
Lemon wedges

Instructions

  1. Sprinkle one side of each breast with salt, pepper, lemon rind, thyme and cheese. Top with prosciutto slices. Cover with plastic wrap and, with a meat mallet, pound each to ¼-inch thickness.
  2. Heat oil and butter in a nonstick skillet. Add chicken, prosciutto side down; cook 4 minutes or until prosciutto is crispy. Flip chicken; cook 2 minutes. Serve with lemon wedges and Fresh Tomato Salad.
