Recipe: Italian Stuffed Chicken

Summary: I almost went back with the standby Greek Stuffed Chicken, but the challenge of creating a new stuffed variety was too tempting. For the Italian version, I changed up the stuffing and wrapped it in prosciutto ham. Needless to say, it was wicked good!


  • 4 chicken breasts
  • 9 slices of prosciutto ham
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp white wine
  • 3 tbsp pecorino romano cheese, grated
  • 2 tbsp fontina cheese, grated
  • 2 fresh basil leaves, chopped
  • 4 cloves of minced garlic
  • 1/2 red onion, diced
  • 1/4 tsp of each oregano, salt, black pepper, and crushed red pepper
  • 2 tbsp sundried tomatoes, chopped


  1. In a skillet, add olive oil and onions. Saute until onions are very soft. Add in garlic, basil, sundried tomatoes and one slice of prosciutto. Saute together with dry ingredients until nicely blended. Add white wine and cheeses until cheese melts. Stir and remove from heat. Cut a pocket into the chicken breasts and stuff the mixture into the chicken with a spoon. Wrap the outside of each chicken breast with two sliced of prosciutto making sure to cover the hole used for stuffing.
  2. Pre-heat the grill to 375 degrees. Place the chicken on the grill and turn after 15 minutes. Then, check after 5 minutes for doneness.
