Just because you're getting out the meat mallet doesn't mean the recipe has to be complicated. Pounded chicken cooks very quickly and is a great medium for a quick, tasty filling. Serve with Golden Roast Potatoes (start them well ahead) or Creamy Mashed Potatoes.

  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 cup shredded Asiago cheese
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 4 slices prosciutto
  • 4 slices ham


Place chicken between sheets of waxed paper; using mallet or bottom of skillet, pound to generous 1/4-inch (5 mm) thickness. Sprinkle both sides with salt and pepper.

Brush mustard over tops; sprinkle with basil, cheese and half of the parsley. Starting at 1 short end, roll up. Wrap 1 slice prosciutto around each roll, keeping ends of prosciutto close to seam in chicken. Secure ends of prosciutto and seam of chicken with thick toothpicks or short skewers. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate in airtight container for up to 1 day.)

Place, seam side down, on foil-lined rimmed baking sheet; roast in 425°F (220°C) oven until chicken is no longer pink inside, about 18 minutes. Broil until prosciutto is crisp, about 3 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes; sprinkle with remaining parsley. To serve, spoon any juices over top.
