Florentine Chicken Cordon BleuPork, Poultry

Active Time: 30 minutes
Start to Finish: 30 minutes


  • 1 Tbs. butter
  • cup low-sodium chicken broth
  • all-purpose flour for dredging
  • 2 Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 cups thinly sliced fresh spinach leaves
  • 2 slices swiss cheese
  • 4 5-7 oz. boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 3 oz. shaved prosciutto or Virginia ham


Cut each chicken breast in half horizontally and open like a book. Layer one-fourth of the prosciutto, cheese and spinach on one side of each breast; leave the other side uncovered.

Carefully fold each breast over the filling to enclose it and secure with a toothpick. Dredge in flour.

Heat butter and oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat until very hot but not smoking. Carefully place the chicken in the skillet. Cook 3 to 4 minutes per side to brown evenly. Add broth; cover tightly. Cook 5 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.

Choosing an Olive Oil
If a recipe calls for olive oil, you may substitute extra virgin olive oil; but if it calls for extra virgin olive oil, we do not suggest substituting any other type of olive oil.
