Yesterday, Adalyn returned to school in the First Grade. It wasn’t without it’s challenges. Adalyn’s fears turned to tears and of course, mine followed. We had hoped today would be easier for her, but it proved to be even more difficult.

As we started downstairs to get breakfast, Ani mis-stepped and flailed down them as I watched helplessly in horror. Even with a couple of cuts, bumps, and an enormous goose egg, she mustered a smile to let us know she was alright. Even when the days are hard, cooking dinner doesn’t have to be, so I decided it was the perfect day to share my Prosciutto and Cheese Stuffed Chicken Breast recipe.

A couple weeks ago, my friend Michael went to Maui. As I watched him chronicle his adventures on Instagram, I couldn’t help but reminisce about Chris and I’s honeymoon there, which inspired me to make one of my favorite dinners we had during our stay there – Prosciutto and Cheese Stuffed Chicken Breast. Chicken doesn’t have to be boring, but it can be one of the easiest protein dishes to make.

Cooking Stuffed Chicken Breast

I used to be intimidated to pound chicken breasts, but then I purchased this handy little tool, which makes it quick and easy. However, if you don’t have one, you can use a rolling pin like a mallet or put it in plastic and use a cast iron skillet. However you flatten your chicken, don’t let that deter you. It’s quick and simple, promise!

Everything is better when stuffed with cheese. Fontina is a soft cheese that melts really well, which is why it’s often used in fondues. It is full of flavor and balances the salty prosciutto.

It’s topped with white wine and brushed with olive oil and herbs for a light, subtle flavor and really moist chicken!

Stuffed Chicken Breast in the Oven

I always say, if you want the juiciest chicken, bake it. Stuffed chicken breast in the oven is not only easy, but helps seal in the moisture that you just don’t get on the stove top. Cooking stuffed chicken breast only takes 10 minutes hands on time.  You’ll also love my Baked Chicken Breast recipe!
