INGREDIENTS

DIRECTIONS

• 4 chicken breast halves, boneless skinless
• 4 oz mozzarella cheese (part skim), fresh, sliced
• 8 leaves basil (fresh)
• 4 slice(s) prosciutto
• 2 tsp olive oil

1. Slice each chicken breast horizontally almost all the way through and open like a book. Place one mozzarella slice and two basil leaves in the center and fold both sides over.
2. Wrap the closed chicken breast with a slice of prosciutto to hold it closed.
3. Brush the chicken lightly with olive oil. Grill over medium heat about 8 minutes per side or until done.

Note: We suggest purchasing your prosciutto at the deli counter so it is long and full enough to wrap around the entire chicken breast.
Suggested Side:  Green Bean Caprese Salad

My family loved this chicken recipe. Very easy to make. Will definitely save this to my favorites and make again.

How do you avoid the cheese from melting out?

Wrapping the stuffed chicken with prosciutto keeps all of the cheese from melting out. It's really yummy.
