Ingredients

  • 3 chicken breasts
  • 6 slices prosciutto
  • 3 slices fontina
  • 1 cup white wine
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon oregano

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Pound chicken breasts to ⅓" thick.
  • Add 2 pieces prosciutto and a slice of fontina into the middle of your chicken breast. Roll the breast and secure with a toothpick or bamboo skewer.
  • Pour 1 c white wine over chicken breasts.
  • Brush top of chicken with olive oil and sprinkle oregano.
  • Bake 30 minutes.

Notes

  • When you pound the chicken breast flat, lay a piece of clingfilm on top of the meat so that it doesn't stick to the mallet. 
  • If you don't have a meat pounder, you can use a rolling pin like a mallet or put it in plastic and use a cast iron skillet.
  • Take care not to overcook the chicken or it can dry out. If you have an instant read thermometer, it should register at 165ºf. If you pierce the breast with a fork, the juices should run clear.
  • Do not overcrowd chicken in your pan when cooking. Leaving space between them will allow them to brown and cook more evenly.
