SERVE:

If you don't have prosciutto, you can use bacon or just omit it. You may also substitute chicken broth for the wine.

Instructions

Season chicken with salt and pepper. Dust each breast with flour, shaking off any excess.

Sauté chicken in oil in a sauté pan coated with nonstick spray, over medium-high heat, until lightly browned on both sides, about 3 minutes per side. Remove chicken, set aside, and keep warm.

Add mushrooms and prosciutto to pan. Cook until mushrooms soften and begin to brown, 2–3 minutes. Add wine and cream to pan. Return chicken to pan, reduce heat, and simmer until sauce thickens slightly, about 8 minutes. Stir in tarragon and vinegar; cook 1 minute.

Serve chicken over slices of toasted bread, and garnish with chives.

To create a crisp crust on the outside of the chicken, be sure the oil in the pan is hot before adding it.

As the sauce thickens, return the chicken to the pan to finish cooking it.
