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.

Serving stuffed chicken turns ordinary chicken breasts into a special meal. Stuffed with simple ingredients, it's sweet, salty, and very good. The sweet apple with the salty prosciutto is a match made in heaven. The cream sauce poured on top makes this an elegant dish.
