  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (6 ounces each)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons canola oil, divided
  • 3 cups cut fresh green beans (2-inch pieces)
  • 1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 4 thin slices deli ham
  • 4 slices part-skim mozzarella cheese


  1. Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper. In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium heat. Add chicken; cook 4-6 minutes on each side or until a thermometer reads 165°. Remove from pan.
  2. Heat remaining oil in same pan. Add green beans and mushrooms; cook and stir 3-4 minutes or until beans are crisp-tender. Return chicken to pan; top each with a slice of ham and cheese. Cook, covered, 1-2 minutes or just until cheese is melted.
