I used proscuitto in place of guanciale and it req much less cooking time. The dish was relatively fast and easy, but tasted expensive. Served w spinach salad and wine. Will definitely make again.

I had to use Pancetta in place of the guanciale. The stuffing was a big hit with my family.

Oh my goodness this was tasty! I don't even like gorgonzola and I loooooved this dish! I used pancetta and the salty pancetta mixed really well with the creamy gorgonzola. Mashed potatoes and a Caesar salad rounded out the meal!

Huge hit with my family. Couldn't find guanciale so used 2 oz serrano ham instead. Took longer than 8 minutes in the oven. Probably dependent on the breast size.

Absolutely fantastic! I had prosciutto on hand and used that. The key is to let the meat rest for 5 minutes under foil. I served it with polenta and green beans with browned garlic. Will definitely make again!

This was easy and delicious! I didn't use the Olive Oil to cook the chicken, and I love tomato, so I could have used more, but overall a very nice dish.

Very tasty chicken,very easy & I would serve it to company. I used pancetta, couldnt find guanciale. I served it with polenta & baby broccoli that was first blanched, then finished in garlic olive oil. This will go in my rotation.

Tried this recipe for a first date and it was perfect! I used bacon for the pork since I couldn't find the other two options, and it was fine. The chicken took about 5 minutes longer to cook in the oven than they said. Served with fingerling potatoes, garlic sauteed broccoli and Woop Woop Shiraz.

We were so disappointed in this recipe, particularly after reading all the wonderful reviews. Admittedly, I used pancetta instead of guanciale; perhaps that is the reason for a real lack of flavor. We had expected the flavors to jump out. Unfortunately we found it a little bland. There are better stuffed chicken breast recipes out there.
