This is from the Australian Women's Weekely New Cookbook (which is now VERY old). September 09. I had this at a friend's place last week and she used prosciutto instead of regular ham-a really good substitution I'll be trying soon myself.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Dust chicken breasts with the seasoned flour.
  2. Heat the butter in frying pan; add crushed garlic and chicken; saute gently until chicken is lightly golden brown.
  3. Add wine; bring to the boil.
  4. Reduce heat; simmer covered 20 minutes or until chicken is tender; remove chicken from the pan.

  7. Put on a heatproof serving dish.
  8. Cook in a moderate oven, uncovered, for 10 minutes or until the cheese has melted.

This was great! I forgot the cream so I didn't make the sauce, but even without it was soo good. I can't wait to try it with the sauce! Thanks for posting!

Absolutely loved this recipe. Used essance spice to season flour. Substituted yogurt for cream. Cut servings for chicken in half but made all the sauce. After pouring 2 Tbsp sauce over chicken, I added 1-2 Tbsp cream cheese to remaining sauce and added to 3-4 oz pasta. Flavours were very tasty.
