5 recipes, 5 ingredients - Fancy Proscuitto Herb Cheese Chicken
Recipe type: Entree
  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (big ones, 8 ounces each) or chicken cutlets
  • 5.2 ounces garlic and herb cheese spread (we use Boursin cheese, but you can use Allouette or Rondelé, all available in the fancy cheese deli section in the grocery store)
  • 6-8 slices prosciutto, found in the deli counter
  • 1 lemon, zested and juiced
  • Fresh basil, at least 16 leaves
  1. Preheat oven to 375°.
  2. Spray a baking dish big enough to contain the number of chicken rolls you are making (you should be able to spread them far enough so they don’t touch).
  3. Lay out each whole chicken breast on a work surface, and with a sharp slicing knife, carefully cut the chicken breast in half horizontally, creating 4 thin chicken cutlets.
  4. Top each with the herb cheese and spread to the edge.
  5. Top with basil leaves.
  6. Roll, from the narrow end all the way to the wider end.
  7. Take one piece of proscuitto and carefully wrap it up completely; place the rolled chicken seam-side down in the baking dish.
  8. Repeat with the others and place in pan without touching each other.
  9. Pour lemon juice over rolls and top with lemon zest.
  10. Bake in the middle of the oven for 30-40 minutes or until the chicken’s internal temperature is 165° to 170°.
  11. Remove from pan and let cool slightly for easy slicing.
  12. With a sharp knife, cut into pinwheels and place on plates.
  13. Cover with pan drippings.
