Recipe 36: this is another easy recipe that sometimes my mum used to prepare to change a bit. The chicken is something that goes well with lots of ingredients but especially with cheese, so you can try this recipe with cheese and ham or you can also try the same but with some mushrooms.
Ingredients for 2 people: 2 chicken breasts, some slices of cooked ham (it depends by the cut) or Parma ham, some Emmental cheese (between 50 and 100gr following your taste and the size of the chicken breasts), salt, pepper, olive oil and parsley.
First of all you will need to make your chicken breast very thin, or opening them up like i normally do (considering here they are particularly big) or using something to press them . Then place some slices of cheese long the meat and add some chopped fresh parsley or even rosemary if you have.
Then place the ham slices on top until cover it all. Let some oil boil in a pan and then start to cook the chicken putting the ham side down. Leave it there for some minutes and then, when it stars to look like cooked, turn it and leave it again. Keep on doing this until totally cooked. You can even cut a bit the meat to check if it’s perfectly cooked inside.
Serve it with some vegetables and a bit of lemon if you like it and enjoy!
For the other version i suggest you too cook some mushrooms before with a bit of oil and garlic, or you can even try to cover the cheese and chicken with some mushrooms in slices and follow the same process to cook it.
PS: Mamy t’e’ piaciuta questa rivisitazione del tuo pollo con la crema di formaggio ed il prosciutto…ma mi ricordo ci aggiungevi anche i funghi talvolta. Non ti aveva dato la ricetta Mirella? A me piaceva tanto e l’altro giorno mi e’ rivenuto in mente, ma invece di far fondere il formaggio da un’altra parte, ho pensato di metterlo sul pollo direttamente e coprirlo con il prosciutto! Da qui petti di pollo in camicia!
Ah quasi dimenticavo… Buon Onomastico Mamy!
