Italian Chicken Breast and Cutlet Recipes
Chicken Stuffed with Prosciutto and Fontina Cheese
Chicken Stuffed with Prosciutto and Fontina Cheese

(Makes 4 rolls)


2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
Salt and pepper
4 slices prosciutto, thinly sliced
4 pieces of Fontina cheese, cut 1/2 x 1 x 2-inches long
2 tablespoons olive oil
4 tablespoons butter, divided
1/2 cup Marsala
1/2 cup chicken broth
2 tablespoons flour


Slice each breast horizontally in half to make 2 cutlets.   Pound each cutlet to 1/4-inch thickness.  Place a slice of prosciutto on each chicken cutlet.  Cut the prosciutto to fit leaving a 1/2-inch border of chicken around each slice.  Place one piece of cheese 1-inch from short end of chicken cutlet.  Begin to roll up the chicken, tucking in the sides to completely enclose the cheese.
Season the chicken rolls with salt and pepper.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Put olive oil and 2 tablespoons of butter in a skillet over medium heat.
Add the chicken rolls and sauté until brown on all sides, about 5 minutes.
Transfer to a baking dish and bake for 10-12 minutes.

In the meantime, add the Marsala to the skillet and scrape up any brown bits in the pan.  Allow the wine to reduce for 1 to 2 minutes.  Add the chicken broth and season with salt and pepper.  With a fork or your fingers, mash together the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter and flour.  Stir the butter mixture into the sauce in the skillet.  Stir the sauce until it begins to thicken.

To serve: 
Slice each chicken roll into 4 slices and overlap slices on serving dish.
Top with Marsala sauce.
