Ingredients

  • 8 ounces uncooked angel hair pasta or thin spaghetti
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (6 ounces each)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2/3 cup seasoned bread crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 thin slices smoked deli ham
  • 4 slices smoked mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried sage leaves
  • 1/2 cup prepared pesto
  • Grated Parmesan cheese, optional

Directions

  1. Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain; transfer to a large bowl.
  2. Meanwhile, pound chicken breasts with a meat mallet to 1/2-in. thickness; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place bread crumbs in a shallow bowl. Dip chicken in bread crumbs to coat both sides; shake off excess.
  3. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add chicken; cook 4 minutes. Turn; cook 2 minutes longer. Top with ham and mozzarella cheese; sprinkle with sage. Cook 1-2 minutes longer or until a thermometer inserted in chicken reads 165°. Remove from heat.
  4. Add pesto to pasta and toss to coat. Serve chicken with pasta. If desired, sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Yield: 4 servings.
