Reviews forChicken Provolone
"Live alone and it's hard to find breasts small enough for one or two meals. Used tenders, and it worked out great. Followed the recipe exactly and it came out great. A very quick, simple and tasty dish. Would recommend waiting to finish off in the broiler until all your side dishes are ready to serve."
"Delicious combination of flavors. Made one small change: pounded the chicken breasts between plastic wrap until 1/2" before cooking for 3-4 mins each side. Then rolled the remainder of the ingredients up in the breasts, secured with toothpicks, baked until cheese slightly melted."
"This was definitely different, but was pleasantly surprised. My hubby who doesn't usually like chicken, liked it, the ham slices were perfect for him. Loved it !"
"We are not crazy about basil. Could you substitute spinach or.......?"
"Just a comment for Lmoomaw15 ... I've heard of substituting air dried beef for prosciutto. There is a brand called Carson's that might work well for you."
"My family loved this recipe and it was SO easy to prepare. I was making it at the last minute and had to use items on hand, so I substituted thin deli ham for prosciutto and swiss cheese for provolone. When I make it again (which I definitely will), I'll use provolone, but the swiss worked just fine."
"Fresh sage leaves are great in lieu of the basil and a thin slice of hard salami works well for the prosciutto."
