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 Fontina Stuffed Chicken 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 Fontina Stuffed Chicken. Chicken doesn’t have to be boring, but it can be one of the easiest protein dishes to make.

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!

And of course everything is better when stuffed with cheese, but when topped with wine, it’s irresistible. This is a 10 minute dinner that Chris {the non-chicken lover}, the girls and I all enjoy. I even serve it with peas the girls will eat.
