Number of Servings: 4


    4 medium boneless, skinless chicken breast halves (about 1.5 lb
    Kosher salt
    Freshly ground black pepper
    12 large basil leaves
    1/4 lb fresh mozzarella, thinly sliced
    4 thin slices prosciutto
    1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil


1) prepare a medium charcoal fire or light a gas grill to medium high.

2) To prepare the chicken breasts, cut through each one horizontally almost all the way through and open it like a book. Sprinkle the chicken all over with 1/2 tsp each salt and pepper. Layer the basil and mozzarella evenly on half of each breast and then fold it closed. Wrap a slice of proscuitto around each breat to hold it closed and then brush lightly on both sides with the olive oil.

3) Reduce the heat on the gas grill to medium. Grill the breats, covered, until they are well marked, about 4 minutes. Flip and cook, turning every few minutes, until the chicken is just firm to the touch and an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center of the breat registers 165 degrees, another 10-12 minutes. Let cool for a couple of minutes and then serve.

Serve with: roasted vegetables and potatoes.

  • This looks delicious! I'm curious though, since I don't own a grill, if I were to make this in the oven about what temp and time would you suggest? I wonder if using the broiler for a minute or two at the very end would crisp the prosciutto since it wouldn't be on a grill. - 9/1/14
