Chicken Capocollo


  • 1/2 teaspoon dry basil
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 cup low-sodium chicken broth or dry white wine
  • 2 cloves garlic minced or pressed
  • 4 green onions thinly sliced
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 4 thin slices capocollo or coppa sausage or prosciutto (about 1 oz. total)

  • Rinse chicken and pat dry. Place each breast half between 2 sheets of plastic wrap and pound with a flat-surfaced mallet to a thickness of 1/3 to 1/2 inch. Lay a slice of capocollo on each pounded chicken piece, pressing lightly so that chicken and sausage stick together. Set aside.

    Heat oil in a wide frying pan over medium heat. Add onions and garlic; cook, stirring often, until vegetables are lightly browned (about 3 minutes). Then push vegetables to one side and place chicken in pan. Cook just until edges of chicken pieces begin to brown on bottom (about 4 minutes). Turn pieces over and continue to cook until meat in thickest part is no longer pink; cut to test (3 to 4 more minutes). Transfer chicken, sausage side up, to a platter; keep warm.

    To pan, add broth, mustard, lemon juice, and basil. Bring to a boil over high heat, stirring constantly; then pour broth mixture over chicken.
