Panfried Chicken and Ham in Cheese Sauce

Ingredients for 4 Servings:
4 large chicken breast fillets
Salt and pepper
4 large slices of Gruyere cheese
4 large slices of cooked ham
2 tbsp cooking oil
1/4 lbs cream cheese, softened
1 cup white wine
1/2 tsp chicken bouillon cube or powder
1 tbsp chopped parsley

Preheat oven to 375 F (or 170 C)

Season chicken breast fillet with salt and pepper, then panfry in cooking oil, about 6-8 minutes each side, until cooked. Remove chicken, then pour wine into pan to deglaze. Add chicken bouillon, let it boil for 2-3 minutes.

Lightly grease a baking dish with butter.

Arrange chicken, ham, and cheese slices on dish in alternating order.

Cut softened cream cheese into small cubes, then add to boiling wine; mix well to obtain a cheese sauce. Mix in chopped parsley.

If sauce is not thick enough, thicken with a little cornstarch dissolved in some water.

Pour sauce on chicken and ham slices. Bake in oven for about 10-15 minutes.

Serve with mashed potatoes.
