Chicken Provolone

Though it's one of my simplest dishes, this version of an Italian classic is also one of my husband’s favorites. It’s quick to prepare and a garnish of fresh parsley or basil makes it look elegant. —Dawn Bryant, Thedford, Nebraska

    Used fresh basil and thyme with sharp/aged provolone for more taste. Good!

    This is a very solid and tasty recipe exactly as written. I have used melted garlic butter in place of the butter flavored spray with equally delicious results. A keeper either way!
