Ingredients

  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 450 g total)
  • pinch each salt and pepper
  • 4 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme
  • 2 Black Forest ham halved
  • 1/2 cup shredded Swiss cheese
Roasted Sweet Potato Salad:
  • 1 sweet potato (about 640 g), cut in 1/2-inch (1 cm) cubes
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon liquid honey
  • pinch each salt and pepper
  • 4 cups baby spinach

Method

Roasted Sweet Potato Salad: Toss sweet potato with 1 tbsp of the oil; spread on lightly greased rimmed baking sheet. Roast in 400F (200C) oven, turning occasionally, until tender and golden, about 20 minutes.

In bowl, whisk together remaining oil, lime juice, honey, salt and pepper. Stir in sweet potato and spinach.

Meanwhile, with knife parallel to cutting board, halve each chicken breast to form
2 thin cutlets (4 total). Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper. Mix mustard with thyme; brush over tops of chicken. Wrap each cutlet with 1 slice of ham. Arrange, seam side down, on lightly greased rimmed baking sheet. Bake in 400F (200C) oven until chicken is no longer pink inside, about 18 minutes. Sprinkle with Swiss cheese; bake until melted, about 1 minute. Serve with salad.
