Swiss Cheese Chicken Recipe

Nicole Pickett of Oro Valley, Arizona tucks a little cheese into tender chicken cutlets, then tops them with a savory sauce. TIP: "I like to serve this with a four-bean salad, then finish up with a pineapple dessert for a meal in minutes," Nicole notes.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:2 servings

Ingredients

  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (4 ounces each)
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 slices Swiss cheese, cut in half
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup white wine or additional chicken broth
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano

Directions

  • 1. Flatten chicken to 1/4-in. thickness. In a shallow bowl, combine the flour, pepper and salt. Place a piece of cheese on each piece of chicken; tuck in ends and roll up. Secure with toothpicks. Roll in flour mixture.
  • 2. In a large nonstick skillet, brown roll-ups in butter on each side over medium heat. Stir in the broth, wine or additional broth and oregano; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 10-12 minutes or until chicken juices run clear. Remove toothpicks before serving. Yield: 2 servings.
