Goat Cheese Stuffed Rosemary Chicken in Prosciutto

Goat Cheese Stuffed Rosemary Chicken in Prosciutto
Man. I’ve really been having one of those weeks. Lots and lots going on with some unexpected (unwelcomed) curve balls. Like being on the receiving end of a 4 car pile up yesterday morning on my way into work. That was no fun. Everyone was okay, so that’s good. However, my poor car. I had JUST picked my car up from the body shop 2 weeks ago from where a delivery truck had rear-ended me. They laughed a little when I brought it in again this morning with twice the damage and an interior that smells of pure coffee from where my entire thermos full of coffee spilled on me during the wreck. If I could hire someone to drive me around everywhere, I so would. ps, I swear I’m a really good driver. It’s everyone else that keeps hitting me.
  • 3 large chicken breasts
  • Salt & pepper
  • ¼ cup of olive oil
  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 sprig of rosemary, de-stemmed and finely chopped
  • 6 sprigs of fresh rosemary
  • 6 tablespoons of goat cheese (3–4 ounces)
  • 6 slices of prosciutto
  1. Pre-heat the oven to 375 degrees F. Grease a baking pan or skillet.
  2. Cut all of the chicken breasts in half. Taking each half, make a long slit down the middle of the chicken breast big enough to fit the cheese in. Season each one with salt and pepper.
  3. In a shallow bowl, mix together the olive oil, garlic, and the finely chopped rosemary.
  4. Taking each chicken breast half, dip it in the olive oil mixture making sure to coat both sides. Place the seasoned chicken in a baking pan or skillet.
  5. Stuff each piece of chicken with ~1 tablespoon of the goat cheese. You can add more or less depending on your chicken and how much you want.
  6. Top each piece of chicken with a sprig of rosemary and then wrap each one in a piece of prosciutto. If needed or desired, you can use a toothpick to hold the prosciutto closed.
  7. Bake for 35-45 minutes checking for done-ness at the 35 minute point.
  8. Once done, let cool slightly and ENJOY!!
