- oven safe pan
- measuring spoon
- Cutting board
- chef's knife
- oven mitt
- 4 chicken breasts
- boneless and skinless
- 4 slices of prosciutto
- 4 slices of brie cheese
- 2 tablespoons of olive oil
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
- Lay out the chicken breasts and season both sides with salt and pepper.
- Place a slice of brie cheese on each chicken breast.
- Roll up each chicken breast tightly, making sure the cheese is inside. Use toothpicks to secure the chicken breasts and keep them from unrolling
- Wrap a slice of prosciutto around each chicken breast, covering the entire surface.
- Heat the olive oil in a large oven-safe pan over medium-high heat.
- Add the chicken breasts to the pan and cook for 2-3 minutes on each side until browned.
- Transfer the pan to the preheated oven and bake for 15-20 minutes until the chicken is cooked through and the cheese is melted.
- Remove the pan from the oven and let the chicken rest for a few minutes before removing the toothpicks and serving.
Note that when stuffing the chicken breasts with brie cheese, it's important to use a sharp knife to make a slit in the thickest part of the chicken without cutting through to the other side. This will create a pocket where the cheese can be inserted. Be sure to seal the chicken properly with toothpicks to prevent the cheese from oozing out during cooking.
