Stuffed Chicken

Yum, Yum, Easy, Yum. This recipe was great! Not to metion it was so easy! My husband whipped this up with no instruction whatsoever. He even added his own flare to it but using prosciutto instead of deli ham. This is definitely a light, 30 minute meal that we will be putting on our menu often. To make this a heavier meal you could use one chicken breast for each person instead of sharing one. If you do this, I recommend thinning your chicken breast out with a cooking a mallet, this meal is much better with minimal chicken on each side! Once more: YUM!

Note:This recipe is only for 2 double, triple, or quadruple to accommodate your needs!

Adapted From: Kill the Gluten

1 chicken breast, sliced in half
4 slices of prosciutto (or deli ham, but I recommend prosciutto)
3 swiss cheese slices

Slice each half of the chicken breast lengthways, until almost cutting through. (It will be like a hot dog bun, don't cut it all the way through, leave just a little to keep it connected). The chicken will be very thin on each side. Open breast to butterfly position. Layer 1 slice of prosciutto, 1 1/2 slices of swiss, then one additional slice of prosciutto. Fold top over and use toothpicks to secure.  
Place in greased baking pan to prevent sticking. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes. I do not recommend seasoning with extra salt, the prosciutto is very flavorful.
