Prosciutto di Parma
Silky, sliced Prosciutto di Parma makes every dish feel like a special occasion. It’s a delicious charcuterie accompaniment to cheese, melons, dates, olives and breads. This ham variety can also be served at the start of a meal as an antipasto, wrapped around steamed asparagus spears, or as an ingredient in specialty sandwiches or pizzas.

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 5 ounces each)
½ cup all-purpose flour
¾ teaspoon kosher salt

Prep: 20 minutes | Cook: 16 minutes | Serves: 4
1. Lay chicken breasts between plastic wrap on cutting board; with flat end of meat mallet, pound chicken to ½-inch thickness and remove plastic wrap.
2. In a wide, shallow dish, whisk flour, and ½ teaspoon each salt and pepper. Whisk eggs in second wide, shallow dish; place breadcrumbs in third wide, shallow dish.
3. Dip chicken in flour mixture to coat, then dip in the egg wash, allowing excess to drip off, and breadcrumbs to coat, pressing lightly so breadcrumbs adhere.
4. In 2 batches, in a large skillet, heat 1½ tablespoons oil over medium-high heat; add 2 chicken breasts and cook 8 minutes or until golden brown and internal temperature reaches 165°, turning once.
5. In a medium bowl, whisk 1 tablespoon lemon juice, and remaining 1 tablespoon oil and ¼ teaspoon salt; stir in prosciutto, arugula and onion. Makes about 3 cups.
