Stove-Top Chicken Provolone proves that the only thing separating you from a top-shelf, home-cooked meal is less than half an hour of time and a few easy steps. Juicy chicken is sautéed to a lovely, savory golden brown and topped with herbaceous basil, salty, fatty prosciutto, and creamy provolone, all broiled to melty majesty. That's it. Stove-Top Chicken Provolone seems simple, but the flavors are indulgent thanks to the incredible ingredients; all the cooking achieves is bringing them together in a way that makes the most of them. You'll be blown away by what you can make in your own oven!


• 4 (4-ounce) chicken breast halves, boneless and skinless • 1/4 teaspoon pepper • 8 fresh basil leaves • 4 thin slices prosciutto or deli ham • 4 slices provolone cheese

Spray a large skillet with butter-flavor cooking spray.

Step 4

Sprinkle the chicken with pepper.

Step 5

Over medium heat, cook the chicken in the prepared skillet until a meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the chicken reads 165 degrees F, about 4-5 minutes per side.

Transfer the chicken to an ungreased baking sheet.

Step 7

Top the chicken with the basil, prosciutto, and cheese.

Step 8

Broil until the cheese is melted, about 1-2 minutes.
