Preparation steps

1.

With a sharp knife, make a horizontal cut through each chicken breast and unfold like a book (butterfly). Season with salt and pepper. Place a slice of cheese and ham on each breast.

2.

Rinse zucchini, trim ends and cut lengthwise into 2-3 mm thick (approximately 1/8-inch thick) slices.

3.

Blanch zucchini slices in boiling salted water, about 30 seconds. Drain, rinse with cold water, drain again and pat dry. Carefully wrap each piece of chicken with 2-3 slices of zucchini and secure with a toothpick. Heat clarified butter in a pan over medium heat. Fry chicken breasts on both sides. Add broth, cover and simmer 8-10 minutes. Serve with a baguette, if desired.
