Comments: Delicious and easy to make. You can cook these in a skillet or on the grill.
1 1/2 pounds chicken breast, boneless and skinless
1 1/2 ounces prosciutto, thinly sliced, visible fat trimmed
2 ounces cheese, mozzarella, low moisture and part skim milk
1/4 cup basil, fresh, chopped
1/4 cup salad dressing, balsamic vinaigrette, low fat
pepper, black, ground, to taste
Preparation: Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Carefully cut down the side of each chicken breast to open up like a book (do not cut all the way through). Open it up and lay it flat on the cutting board. Divide the Prosciutto, cheese and chopped basil among the chicken breasts and arrange them in layers over one side of the chicken. Fold top over filling and secure with toothpicks. Brush outside of chicken with salad dressing and top with ground black pepper. Place a large non stick skillet over medium heat. Place the chicken in the skillet and cook for about 2 to 3 minutes per side. Place the browned chicken breasts in a baking dish and continue cooking in the oven for about 10 minutes until cooked through. Remove from oven, slice and serve.
