"This recipe is so good and surprisingly easy. The chicken comes out of the oven crispy yet stays moist with an indulgent filling. Chicken can be stuffed and wrapped the night before; ideal for entertaining! I like to serve this with pasta or with mashed potatoes and a quick pan gravy. Carbohydrate conscious? This recipe also goes great with a salad of mixed greens and vinaigrette."

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spread 1 tablespoon of olive oil on a baking sheet, and set aside.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in the shallots, and cook until they turn translucent, about 3 minutes. Stir in the garlic, thyme, salt, and pepper; cook and stir an additional 2 minutes. Transfer the shallot mixture to a bowl. Mix in the goat cheese, dates, and basil; stir until well combined.
  3. With a sharp knife, cut a 1-inch long slit into the thick side of each chicken breast. Work your fingers into the slit, and expand the slit to form a pocket in the breast meat. With your fingers or a spoon, stuff each chicken breast with about 1/4 cup of the goat cheese mixture. Wipe off any cheese mixture from the outside of the chicken breast, and wrap each breast in a slice of prosciutto so that the pocket opening is covered. Place the chicken breasts, seam sides down, onto the prepared baking sheet.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until the chicken meat is no longer pink and the prosciutto is browned and crisp, about 40 minutes. Turn the chicken breasts over after 20 minutes.

This dish was good, but not good enough to make it worth the effort it took to make it.

Looks GREAT!!!! What is the orange colored sauce you have on the plate???? Thanks

Used Cranberries instead of dates.

I had to cheat this recipe a lot, but it still turned out wonderful. Namely, I didn't have prosciutto or dates, and used (nothing) and apples instead. My wife was beaming after eating this delic...

This turned out perfectly. The recipe was easy to follow and the dates really added a tasty sweetness to the meal. I found the goat cheese really mellowed out as it baked. Wonderful!

I made this for the first time on Monday and I made it again on Wednesday. I added 2 extra dates and a little extra basil the second time. These flavors are amazing together. I wouldn't omit ...
