  1. Mix the cream cheese, red onion, garlic, and black pepper together in a small bowl; set aside. Place the chicken breasts between two sheets of waxed paper on a solid, level surface. Firmly pound the chicken with the smooth side of a meat mallet to a thickness of 1/4 inch.
  2. Spread the cream cheese mixture over the flattened chicken breasts, then place two slices of prosciutto and two leaves of basil over the cream cheese on each breast. Roll the chicken breasts over the filling, and secure with toothpicks. Cover, and refrigerate 1 hour to overnight.
  3. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken breasts; cook until browned on all sides, about 10 minutes. Remove the chicken from the pan, and set aside. Whisk the butter and flour into the skillet until the butter melts and the flour turns golden, about 1 minute. Stir in the white wine, and cook for 1 minute. Pour in the chicken broth, and return to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer for a few more minutes. Return the chicken breasts to the skillet, and cover; cook until the chicken is no longer pink in the center, about 5 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

It didn't come out like I expected. I think it's because I thought the cream cheese overpowered the rest of th meat.

It was a five star for us. The recipe says cook time at the top of the recipe. 30 minutes. That is pretty much true. I did as it directed when I was simmering it in the sauce. I simmered...

Very tasty! My local market was out of prosciutto, so I improvised and use bacon. I was concerned that the chicken might be lacking in flavor by doing so, but it was great even with the substi...

Very tasty!! I made this for company, and they had to cancel at the last minute. Needless to say, I was not sad to have leftovers of this entree. It is even better the second time around! Th...

Some people care about their diet, but for me it comes down to how good something tastes, so when I saw that this recipe called for low fat cream cheese, I substituted with regular instead. Aft...

This was delicious!!! Didn't put in the wine because my boyfriend is allergic to it but it was still fantastic. The cooking time definitely needs to be adjusted it doesn't take 5 minutes after m...

I think this is my favorite chicken. The sauce is heavenly and tastes like I got it in a restaurant!

WONDERFUL! The only thing I did different was used dried Italian seasoning as I didn't have any fresh basil. My husband loved it, thought it tasted like something he could have gotten in a res...
