Apple & Prosciutto Stuffed Chicken Breasts

I absolutely love prosciutto. The combination of the apple and the prosciutto will surprise you with how delicious it tastes and how elegant it looks.

If you want an even more decadent recipe that this already is, substitute heavy cream for the whole milk. Wow...you will taste the difference.

Ingredients

1/2 c
fuji apple, finely chopped
1/8 tsp
apple pie spice
4
chicken breast halves, skinless and boneless
4
thin slices of prosciutto
1/2 tsp
apple pie spice
1 Tbsp
salted butter
1 Tbsp
all purpose flour
2/3 c
whole milk
1 dash(es)
fresh ground black pepper

Step-By-Step

1Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2Grease a glass ovenproof baking dish and set aside.
3In a small bowl combine the apple and 1/8 teaspoon apple pie spice. Set aside.
4Place chicken breasts between two gallon zip lock bags on a solid, level surface and firmly pound the chicken with the smooth side of a meat mallet to a thickness of 1/4 inch.
5Place one slice of prosciutto on each chicken breast.
6Place 1/4 of the apple mixture on each chicken breast.
7Roll up each breast and secure with a toothpick.
8Sprinkle 1/2 teaspoon apple pie spice all over the outside of the chicken breast and place into the prepared glass baking dish.
9Bake the chicken breasts, uncovered, in the preheated oven until they are no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear which takes about 25 to 30 minutes.
10When the chicken is almost done, melt the butter in a small sauce pan over medium heat.
11Whisk in the flour to make a smooth paste.
12Whisk in the whole milk and fresh ground black pepper.
13Bring to a boil.
14Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly which takes about 5 minutes.
15Pour the sauce over the chicken and serve immediately.
