I've made these twice now, and they are a hit with the family. I also use fresh chicken breasts, and I add a nice chunk of fresh mozzarella instead of sliced and extra basil. If I don't have prosciutto, I just wrap with regular bacon, and this last time, I covered them with a simple maple glaze about 5 minutes before they were finished in the oven - wonderful!! Also, I don't pan fry first, just prepare and pop them in the oven!

Only OK not fantastic for the amount of work. Did add extra basil & cheese but was bland except for the prosciutto. May try again with Havarti cheese or another that had a taste to it.

This was very good!! I've had a version of this before with another cheese, but the mozzarella was great! I used fresh mozz., not deli slices. Next time I would add on more cheese. Very easy and fast, but elegant. Thanks for the recipe!

This dish was super easy and delicious. We used regular chicken breasts and seasoned with salt and pepper.

Followed this almost exactly. The only thing I did differently is that I simmered some minced garlic in with the olive oil in the skillet. Perfect!

Great recipe and very tasty! I used frozen breasts that I grilled up. I also cut them along the "thin side" to sandwich the basil & mozzarella. Then skipped the the pan frying and put them straight into the oven.

The leftovers were great on a hamburger roll the next day!

This is one of my huband's favorites now and is so easy! I have substituted pancetta when our small local grocery store is out of prociutto and it does the job as well. A keeper for sure!
