Following a link from Bitten, I ended up watching the video of Bittman with Jamie Oliver. The dish looked quite nice and we had a couple chicken breasts in the house anyway from stock making, so I gave it a try.
Take a chicken breast, season it on the "wet" side with salt and pepper. Top with some fresh thyme leaves, a good sprinkling of parmesan, and then thinly sliced dried ham (parma or something similar). Pound it out to be thin and even and then cook it, starting ham-side down, in some olive oil over medium-high heat. Season the other side, flip after a couple minutes, cook the other side for a couple of minutes, then serve with bread, drizzled with olive oil.
Quick, simple, and quite good.
