Ingredients:

  • 1 large clove garlic, minced and mashed
  • 1 T anchovy paste
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped, flat-leaf parsley
  • 2 T olive oil, divided
  • 4 (1/4 pound) pieces chicken scallopini (cutlets flattened to 1/4 inch thick)
  • 1 large plum tomato, cut crosswise into 8 slices, discarding ends

Directions:

Stir together garlic, anchovy paste, parsley, 1/2 tablespoon oil, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.

Pat chicken dry, then spread with parsley mixture. Fold chicken in half crosswise and insert 2 slices of tomato into each pocket. Season outside of pockets with 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper (total), then brush with 1/2 tablespoon oil.

Heat remaining tablespoon oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Add chicken and brown 2 minutes per side. Reduce heat to low and cover skillet, then cook until chicken is just cooked through, 3 to 5 minutes more. Serve with pan juices.

Makes 4 servings.
