Serves: 4
Ingredients
  • 6 (4-ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
  • 6 (1/2-ounce) slices Gruyère cheese
  • 1½ cups trimmed arugula
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. To prepare the chicken, place each chicken breast half between 2 sheets of heavy-duty plastic wrap; pound to ¼-inch thickness using a meat mallet or rolling pin. Discard plastic wrap. Top each chicken breast half with 1 slice cheese, and ¼ cup arugula, leaving a ¼-inch border around edges. Fold in half, pinching edges together to seal; sprinkle with salt and pepper. (The chicken can be prepared up to a day ahead and refrigerated at this point.)
  3. Dredge chicken in flour, shaking off excess. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken; cook 5 minutes on each side. Place chicken in a shallow baking pan; bake at 350° for 5 minutes or until done. Keep warm.
