Prosciutto-Wrapped Chicken with Goat Cheese Pesto
Recipe type: Main
Cuisine: Italian
Serves: 4
  • 8 oz goat cheese
  • 2 Tbsp pesto
  • 4 boneless chicken breasts
  • Sundried tomatoes
  • Basil leaves
  • 6 slices prosciutto
  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. In a medium bowl combine the goat cheese with the pesto.
  2. Using a small sharp knife, cut each chicken breast into 2–3 even pieces. Cut a slit in the middle of each chicken breast, moving knife back and forth in slit to form a pocket.
  3. Divide cheese mixture among chicken pockets and stuff into slits cut into chicken. Place strips of sundried tomatoes and a basil leaf on top of the cheese. Cut prosciutto into 1" strips. Wrap the chicken piece with prosciutto and press to seal the cheese inside.
