"Creamy brie cheese tucked into chicken breast covered in Parma ham (prosciutto). Easy to make and tastes delicious! The Parma ham can be replaced by bacon, and you can use any cheese you like. This is wonderful served with a cheesy tomato pasta and a leafy green salad." — helena

2 (5 ounce)
skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
freshly ground pepper to taste
chipotle powder to taste
chopped fresh chives
I added garlic salt in with the cheese etc for some extra flavor, but other than that there is nothing I would have changed on this. I did pin some loose ends with tooth picks and that helped, so the cheese didn't slip out at all. Definitely recommend.
This was really quite bland. Most of the cheese ran out of the chicken whilst was cooking even though I secured it tightly. Needs some garlic & other flavourings rather than just chives.
I think this one has potential. Unfortunately, I had a problem because the prosciutto I bought claimed to be thin slices, but was really more like thin tatters--I had to made a kind of patchwork of it to wrap the chicken. This meant that I couldn't tuck the ends in, and all the cheese melted and ran out. The chicken was also overcooked at 40 minutes, so next time I will try 5-10 minutes less. Even so, the flavor was good, and I'll try it again with the right kind of prosciutto slices. I used dried sage instead of chives and no chipotle.
Great recipe. The chicken was a bit dry/overcooked, though. I'd cook it a for either less time or turn down the heat some. I'm going to try 30 minutes next time and then add 5 minutes if it's undercooked. Excellent flavour, though!
Delicious! Love the brie inside! I didn't have chives, but it was still very tasty without them. I think I may have had smaller chicken breasts, but found that I did not need to bake it for the full 40 min. (I would just check the temperature vs. going by the cook time.)
I liked this, but for me it needed a little more oomph. I did use the chipotle but I guess not enough. Next time I will add some fresh rosemary - I tossed a few springs in with the leftovers. My cheese stayed in the chicken just fine
