This is a recipe that will have your mouth watering...

Smoked Ham - enough to cover each piece of chicken

Swiss Cheese slices - enough to cover each piece of  chicken

Cream - Pauls thickened cream - large

Wholegrain mustard

Heat pan and add butter, melt, then add the chicken and garlic, brown the chicken well on all sides...

Add wine and bring to boil, cover with lid and simmer for about 30-40mins (depending of the size of the breast)

Remove chicken from the pan, allow to stand, then add a slice of ham, topped off with the swiss cheese to each breast.

Great recipe! Next time I make it I'll take the bra off before dusting the breasts with flour, salt & pepper

I've done a very similar dish at home. Impresses guests. Try stuffing chicken breast with a peach slice, then brown in butter, roll in ham slice, poach in dry(?) white (covered). Put chicken aside then reduce juices, add cream, chives for sauce.
I like to serve on a swede turnip mash and asparagus.

Normally breast meat ends up a bit dry for us - but I'll give it a go with G&B's peach but without the turnip.
