Herb- Ricotta Stuffed Chicken Wrapped in Prosciutto

serves 8 ( 7 points +)

  • ½ c. low-fat ricotta
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 6 T. grated Parmesan or Romano cheese
  • 2 crushed garlic cloves
  • dried parsley, basil and thyme to taste
  • 8 ( 4 oz) boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, butterflied
  • ¼ lb. prosciutto ( 8 thin slices)
  • 1 T. olive oil
  • ½ c. white wine
  • 2 T. butter

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Combine first 5 ingredients in a small bowl (through parsley, basil and thyme). After your chicken has been cut open (to, but not through the other side), place it on a sheet of plastic wrap. Place another sheet of plastic wrap over the top of chicken pieces. Pound to ¼" thickness.
Place equal amounts of ricotta mixture in the center of each chicken piece. Fold chicken over. Wrap 1 slice of prosciutto around each piece of chicken.

In an oven-proof skillet, drizzle 1 T. olive oil and swirl to coat. Add chicken and brown for 4-6 minutes, turning only once. Transfer pan to oven and cook 12-15 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.

Remove chicken from pan and place on a serving platter. Add wine and butter to pan. Cook until reduced to about ½. Spoon over chicken and serve.
