Steps

  • 1
    Season chicken breasts with salt and pepper. Place 1/3 cup flour in shallow bowl; dredge chicken breasts in flour, shaking off any excess.
  • 2
    In deep 12-inch nonstick skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of the butter and 1 tablespoon of the oil over medium-high heat. Add prosciutto; cook and stir about 2 minutes or until crispy. Using slotted spoon and leaving as much of the fat as possible in skillet, transfer prosciutto to plate, and set aside.
  • 3
    Add chicken breasts to hot skillet; cook over medium heat about 5 minutes on each side or until browned. Transfer to plate.
  • 4
    Add additional 1 tablespoon butter and 1 tablespoon oil to skillet; heat over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms; cook about 4 minutes or until they begin to brown. Add onion; cook about 6 minutes or until softened. Add garlic; continue to cook another minute.
  • 5
    Sprinkle 2 tablespoons flour over vegetables; cook and stir 2 minutes.
  • 6
    Add wine; cook and stir until almost evaporated. Stir in broth; heat to boiling. Reduce heat to medium-low; return chicken breasts to skillet. Cook 10 to 15 minutes or until chicken is cooked through (at least 165°F) and sauce is thickened. Top each serving with crispy prosciutto. Serve over cooked pasta, if desired.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    White button mushrooms are called for in this recipe, but if you’d prefer a stronger mushroom flavor, try substituting sliced cremini mushrooms.
  • tip 2
    Pinot Grigio or Sauvignon Blanc are white wines that work well in this recipe.
