These Italian-style stuffed chicken breasts make for a simple and savory weeknight entrée. Serve with rice and roasted vegetables for a complete, satisfying meal.
1 teaspoon olive oil, divided
3/4 cup minced onion, divided
1/4 cup (1 ounce) chopped prosciutto or lean smoked ham
1 tablespoon grated fresh Parmesan cheese
1 tablespoon dry breadcrumbs
1 1/2 teaspoons minced fresh rosemary, divided
4 (4-ounce) skinned, boned chicken breast halves
1 cup low-salt chicken broth
1/4 cup dry white wine
1 garlic clove, minced
Rosemary sprigs (optional)
How to Make It
Heat 1/2 teaspoon oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add 1/2 cup onion, and sauté 4 minutes. Combine onion, prosciutto, cheese, breadcrumbs, and 1 teaspoon rosemary in a bowl. Stir well; set aside.
Cut a horizontal slit through thickest portion of each chicken breast half to form a pocket. Stuff about 3 tablespoons onion mixture into each pocket.
Heat 1/2 teaspoon oil in skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken; sauté 6 minutes on each side or until chicken is done. Remove chicken from skillet. Set aside; keep warm. Add 1/4 cup onion to skillet, and sauté 3 minutes. Add 1/2 teaspoon rosemary, broth, wine, and garlic, and bring to a boil. Cook 5 minutes or until reduced to 3/4 cup. Return chicken to skillet; cover and simmer 2 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Serve sauce with chicken. Garnish with fresh rosemary, if desired.
This was super delicious, fast and made of ingredients that I had on hand. I subbed prosciutto for turkey bacon and shallots for the remaining onion you use at the end for the sauce- and it turned out excellent! Will make this again, worthy of company coming over for dinner for sure!
I didn't have all the ingredients on hand, but I loved this recipe. I put salt, pepper, & oregano (I don't like rosemary)on the chicken & then marinated it in white wine. I added extra garlic to the stuffing. I didn't make the sauce to cook chicken in - I just cooked it w/the stuff inside in a pan coated w/cooking spray & it came out great!
