Very, very good. What I like most about this 'company worthy' dish is that it can be prepped entirely ahead of time, cooked to order and looks fabulous. BUT it really very easy. As written this feeds more than 2 - more like 3 or 4. Enjoy this great recipe.
I wanted to like this dish ,but the herbs in the stuffing distracted somewhat for me. Loved the cherries ,but the prosciutto was also a bit disappointing. I cannot justify keeping this recipe because it was it was little to labor intensive for such a so-so flavor.
Made this dish as per recipe. AMAZING and looks like a lot more work than it really is. Once you have mastered the technique of poudning and wrapping the chicken, the possibilities are endless! SO worth the time!
This is a great recipe! I recommend this for everyone. I had to use cranberries instead of cherries and it still tasted amazing. I would recommend at least doubling the filing because mine did not seem to have enough filing for my taste.
I stuck with the recipe but instead of proscuitto, I used bacon (store didn't have proscuitto), which made tying the strings a little more difficult, but it was worth it. Was delicious and very fillling. Will make again!
Wow!!! This was really tasty. Depending on your palate you can add a few more cherries. I am a parmasien cheese fan and added some to the top after cooking. You can't go wrong with adding more stuffing to this dish. Will def. cook this again.
Top notch recipe! Watch the video for step by step instructions; it really makes everything clear! Husband thought it was a tad too salty (which I didn't even do all the salt that was suggested). Used dry herbs (gasp)! 1/4 tsp each and baked on a small jelly roll type pan. 25 minutes was perfect; the sauce was delightful. Served over rice pilaf. I will definitely make again!
Awesome. Made this for my hubby for our anniversary last night. It was great. Something so different and fairly easy. How can you go wrong with prosciutto??? The cherry gave it a twist. I doubled all ingredients except for the cherry and I was glad that I did not doube the cherry as there was plenty of cherry flavor. I also left off the sauce at the end....I was just too tired, maybe next time. Hubby thought it was excellent and "fancy".
