14 Jul

Chicken!  Prosciutto!  Basil!  Provolone!  Together at last!  On my barbecue!  And now maybe on your barbecue too!

It’s what’s for dinner.

Makes 2 servings

basil, provolone + prosciutto stuffed chicken breasts

ingredients

  • 2 small chicken breasts
  • 4 slices of prosciutto
  • 50 g provolone, thinly sliced
  • 6-8 fresh basil leaves
  • olive oil
  • cooking twine

preparation

Butterfly the chicken breasts.

Do you want to learn how to butterfly a chicken breast from someone with a charming French-Canadian accent?  Ok… here’s Ricardo.

Thanks Ricardo.

Lay the butterflied chicken breasts out so they’re ‘open’.  Place one slice of prosciutto, 3-4 basil leaves and half the provolone in each chicken breast and close them.  Wrap one slice of prosciutto around each breast, rub the outside with a bit of olive oil and tie with cooking twine.

Heat the grill to high heat and cook the chicken until it’s seared on the outside and the juices run clear (cooking time will depend on the size of the chicken breast).

Cut off the twine and serve.
