  1. Dredge chicken breasts in flour and shake off excess. Mix together egg and milk until thoroughly combined. Dip chicken into egg mixture, then press into chopped hazelnuts.
  2. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add chicken, and cook until golden brown on both sides, and no longer pink in the center, about 5 minutes per side. Once done, place chicken on a paper towel-lined plate, and keep warm.
  3. Increase heat to high, and pour in wine to deglaze. Stir in mushrooms, prosciutto, and spinach; cook until the mushrooms have softened, about 5 minutes. Pour in cream, bring to a simmer, then reduce heat to medium, and simmer for 5 minutes more. Ladle sauce over chicken to serve.

This is the first time I have ever tried something that hasn't been reviewed yet and I'm glad I did. It was delicious. Hubby and nanny loved it. I did use almonds instead of hazelnuts as that...

This was really good. I do agree with some of the other reviewers. 1. You need to finely chop the hazelnuts (they are too big if you just use them right out of the bag). 2. Add more spinach. ...

Oh, the disappointment of this!! I thought for sure this would become a classic. The ingredients sounded perfect -especially the prosciutto. I hardly changed a thing and thought for sure this...

Whoa! This is rich and flavorful. It's hard to go wrong with prosciutto and cream. I sliced the chicken and served it over a pasta bowl of linguine with the luscious sauce on top. Ahhhh, dreamy!...

I usually only choose recipes that have been reviewed by a lot of viewers/cooks, but like 'bonniecrocker' I took a chance, and I'm glad I did!! This was very easy to make and very tasty - a gre...

I skipped the hazelnuts and mushrooms and made this as a pasta sauce - it was great!

I recently had friends over and I served this dish to them with the Gourmet Mushroom Risotto recipe from this site. We all thought it was out of this world. I added more spinach and prosciutto...

How anyone can rank this recipe under 5 stars is beyond me. This recipe is a 10! There were no leftovers to my dismay, and I did brown and then bake my chicken. Hubby said THIS IS A KEEPER! ...
