Stuffed Chicken Breast with Prosciutto and Cheese is perfect for weeknight meal or fancy enough for company.
This simple recipe is not only delicious but so easy to make. And you can really use anything you happen to have in the fridge for the meat and cheese filling.
I have use many different cheeses and almost any ham type meat will work. My favorite is prosciutto and gruyere cheese. And I always seem to have both of those in my fridge. I have also used peppered ham and swiss cheese.
