A simple-to-fix wine sauce complements this impressive entree. I love when my husband asks me to make this because I love it, too. —Tonya Daugherty, Mansfield, Texas
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 20 min. YIELD:2 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (5 ounces each)
  • 2 slices Swiss cheese (3/4 ounce each)
  • 2 thin slices prosciutto or deli ham
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1 small garlic clove, minced
  • 1 teaspoon all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup marsala wine or chicken broth
  • 2 teaspoons minced fresh parsley
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh rosemary or 1/4 teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh thyme or 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
  • Dash salt
  • Dash pepper

Directions

  • 1. Flatten chicken to 1/4-in. thickness; place one cheese and prosciutto slice down the center of each. Roll up jelly-roll style, starting with a short side; secure with toothpicks.
  • 2. In a small skillet, brown chicken in butter and oil on all sides; transfer to an 8-in. square baking dish coated with cooking spray. Cover and bake at 350° for 20-25 minutes or until a thermometer reads 170°.
  • 3. In the same skillet, saute onion and garlic until tender. Stir in flour until blended; gradually add wine. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Stir in the remaining ingredients. Discard toothpicks from chicken rolls; serve with sauce. Yield: 2 servings.
