Boursin stuffed Chicken

I prepared this chicken dish recently with low expectations.  It was just too simple, and too easy, and too quick to prepare.  Therefore, it couldn’t be THAT good.

Well, I was wrong.  It’s moist, but that boursin cheese – that puts it over the top! It is just so so so good.  Pair it with whatever you want, the chicken is the star of the show!

Boursin Stuffed Chicken

(Adapted from Delish)IMG_1565

4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper
1 package Boursin cheese or herbed goat cheese, 4 oz.
1/2 c. shredded mozzarella
4 slices prosciutto

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Using a meat tenderizer, pound the chicken until 1/4″ thick. Pat dry and liberally season it with salt and pepper on both sides.IMG_1550

Place a spoonful or two of Boursin on one end of each piece, top with a sprinkle of mozzarella cheese.

Roll the chicken up, starting at the cheese-topped end. Wrap chicken with a slice of prosciutto and place in a baking dish seam-side down, so the prosciutto doesn’t unravel. Repeat with each piece of chicken.

Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, or until chicken is no longer pink and juices run clear when pierced with a fork or knife.

Grape Tomatoes with Balsamic GlazeIMG_1562

I LOVE balsamic glaze!  It’s wonderful over anything caprese – a salad, a sandwich, caprese skewers – you name it!  It’s much easier than boiling down balsamic vinegar to get a syrupy paste.

1 pint grape tomatoes, halved

1/4 cup slivered basil leaves

2 TBSP Balsamic Glaze

IMG_1546

Place the chopped tomatoes and basil evenly in 2 bowls.  Salt and pepper the tomatoes.IMG_1549IMG_1562

Then drizzle the balsamic glaze over all.
