How to make it

  • Mix the jam, thyme, and salt and pepper to taste in a bowl.
  • Lay out a long piece of plastic wrap on a cutting board.
  • Place the chicken on the plastic and brush half of the jam mixture evenly on top of each breast.
  • Mound a quarter of the cheese on each piece of chicken, then wrap 2 slices of ham around each breast to cover the cheese.
  • Place another piece of plastic over the chicken and gently pound with a mallet or heavy skillet until about 1/4 inch thick.
  • Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a medium nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Add the chicken and cook until golden and crisp, 3 to 4 minutes.
  • Turn and cook on the other side until cooked through but still moist, 3 to 4 more minutes.
  • Meanwhile, whisk the shallot, mustard, vinegar and the remaining jam mixture in a medium bowl.
  • Slowly whisk in the remaining 3 tablespoons olive oil to make a smooth dressing.
  • Place each piece of chicken on a plate and drizzle with dressing.
  • Toss the greens with the remaining dressing; serve with the chicken.
