  1. Place chicken breast between two layers of plastic wrap and using a mallet or rolling pin, pound chicken to 1/3-inch-thick. Place 1 slice of prosciutto and 1 slice of provolone on each chicken breast. Roll tightly. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes, up to 24 hours.
  2. Meanwhile, in a food processor, combine pecans, breadcrumbs, thyme and salt to make a fine mixture; place in a wide, shallow bowl. Whisk eggs in another wide, shallow bowl. Place flour in a third wide, shallow bowl.
  3. Carefully dredge the rolled chicken breast in flour and shake off excess. Dip the dredged chicken into the egg, then press into the pecan-breadcrumb mixture.
  4. Working in 2 batches, heat half the olive oil in large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook, turning the chicken, until golden-brown on all sides. Remove chicken from skillet and place on a baking sheet. Repeat with remaining olive oil and chicken. Place chicken on baking sheet in a 350-degree oven to finish cooking, about 15 minutes.
  5. Meanwhile, remove pan from heat and carefully pour in wine. Stir to loosen cooked-on bits on the bottom of the pan. Stir in mushrooms. Cook until mushrooms are tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in cream and rosemary sprig and gently simmer for 5 minutes or until thickened slightly. Remove rosemary sprig and stir in spinach. Cook until spinach is wilted, about 2 minutes. Season to taste with freshly ground black pepper.
  6. Place chicken breast on plate and spoon sauce around chicken. Garnish with fresh rosemary and thyme.
