Stuffed Chicken recipes with Prosciutto & Provolone

Some stuffed chicken recipes can be fairly time-consuming to make and end up kind of dry and boring.

I pieced together what I thought was the best (and easiest) ideas from several other stuffed chicken recipes I'd tried in the past and came up with this one.

A stuffed chicken breast that's only got a little prosciutto, provolone cheese and basil leaves wrapped up inside.

Really, it doesn't get much easier than that. stuffed chicken recipes
I've even received mail from some of our younger members who have limited cooking experience and they had great success with this recipe the first time.

That makes me feel great.

Serves: 2 - 4

Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 15 minutes

Direct Heat: 375F - 425F

What you'll need:

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

  • 4 strips of prosciutto ham
  • 4 slices provolone cheese
  • 8 fresh basil leaves
  • kosher salt to taste
  • ground black pepper to taste
  • garlic powder to taste
  • italian seasoning to taste (optional)

    flatten chicken breast

    Step 1:
    Trim any excess fat from the meat and cut off the small tenderloin flap if still attached (save for another use, or put them on skewers to grill with this recipe).

    Place a chicken breast between two sheets of plastic wrap and gently pound the breast to a consistent 1/4" thickness.

    Don't pound to hard or to often or the breast will start to break apart.

    Step 2:
    Sprinkle kosher salt, pepper, garlic powder and italian seasoning (optional) over each flattened chicken breast.

    BBQ chicken breasts

    Step 4:
    Clean and oil the grates of the BBQ. Preheat the grill to 375F - 425F.

    When grill reaches temperature place the stuffed chicken breasts on the grill and close the lid.

    grilled stuffed chicken

    Every 5 - 6 minutes lift the lid and roll the chicken breast over so each side gets grilled.

    These recipes need an internal temperature (in the meat not the stuffing) of 165F.

    After 15 minutes or so the chicken should be cooked to 165F and can be removed from the grill.

    Serve immediately.
