Once the chicken is browned, the assembly is very easy. Just layer the chicken, ham, basil, and Alfredo sauce into a baking dish and bake for 25 minutes. The Alfredo sauce guarantees the chicken will come out moist and tender. Just make sure to let this dish rest for a few minutes when it comes out of the oven before serving. The extra sauce from this dish goes great over fettuccine.
2 Tbsp olive oil
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
8 slices smoked deli ham
1 recipe Alfredo sauce
12 basil leaves, torn into large pieces
4 oz mozzarella cheese
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Cut chicken breasts in half lengthwise. Heat olive oil in large skillet over medium-high heat. Brown chicken breasts on both sides, working in batches if necessary. Remove from pan and set aside.
Spread 1/2 cup Alfredo sauce in bottom of 9 x 13 inch baking pan. Place four pieces of chicken in pan and top with 4 slices of ham. Sprinkle with half the basil leaves. Top with half of remaining Alfredo sauce.
Bake in 375 degree F oven for 25 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through and top is lightly browned. Remove from oven and let cool five minutes before serving.
