Blissful Rosemary Chicken Recipe

  • 4 sprigs fresh rosemary
  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves – pounded to 1/4 inch thickness
  • 4 slices smoked fontina cheese
  • 4 slices prosciutto
  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 cloves garlic, halved
  • salt to taste
  1. Use a knife or grater to sharpen the thick ends of the rosemary sprigs. Soak sprigs in water for at least 10 minutes.
  2. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
  3. Layer each chicken breast with 1 slice fontina and 1 slice prosciutto. Roll tightly, and skewer each with a rosemary sprig to secure.
  4. In a bowl, whisk together the wine, broth, oil and pepper. Pour into a medium baking dish. Place rolled chicken breasts in the dish. Place 2 garlic halves under each breast.
  5. Bake 25 minutes in the preheated oven, until chicken juices run clear. Remove from baking dish, reserving sauce, and allow to stand 5 minutes.
  6. Transfer remaining sauce to a saucepan, and bring to a boil. Drizzle over chicken to serve. Season chicken with salt to taste.
