Chicken with Prosciutto, Sage & Goat Cheese

The ultimate in easy entertaining, this classic dish will impress guests and can be prepped, cooked, sliced and served in under 45 minutes. Featuring a savoury pillowy centre of shallot and sage infused Ontario goat cheese and fresh Ontario prosciutto, these moist chicken breasts are sure to impress your guests.

 1 tbsp (15 mL) butter
 1 large shallot, finely chopped
 2 tbsp (30 mL) fresh chopped sage leaves
 ½ tsp (2 mL) each, salt and fresh cracked pepper
 2 oz (60 g) crumbled goat cheese
 4 Ontario chicken breast, skin on
 4 slices Ontario prosciutto
 1 tbsp (15 mL ) melted butter
Steps:
1

In heavy saucepan, melt butter over medium heat; cook shallots, stirring, for about 5 minutes or until softened; let cool completely. Stir in sage, salt, pepper and goat cheese. Set aside.

2

Meanwhile, using sharp knife, remove bones from chicken breasts, leaving skin intact. Slice horizontally, almost all the way through, so that chicken breast opens like a book. Stuff each breast with a slice of prosciutto and a 1/4 cup (50 mL) of the goat cheese mixture pressing to spread evenly; fold breast to enclose filling. Place on greased rimmed baking sheet, skin side up; brush with butter.

3

Bake in 375°F (190°C) oven, for about 35 minutes or until golden brown and chicken is no longer pink inside. Serve immediately.
