This delectable recipe features juicy chicken breasts stuffed with a flavorful mixture of sweet apples and savory prosciutto, creating a perfect balance of flavors. It's a dish that is sure to impress your family and friends with its elegant presentation and delicious taste.

Ingredients

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 apple, diced
  • 4 slices of prosciutto
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F.
  2. In a small bowl, combine diced apples, mozzarella cheese, breadcrumbs, garlic powder, dried thyme, salt, and pepper.
  3. Using a sharp knife, make a pocket in each chicken breast by cutting a slit horizontally through the side of the breast, being careful not to cut all the way through.
  4. Stuff each chicken breast with the apple mixture and wrap a slice of prosciutto around each breast to secure the filling.
  5. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Sear the stuffed chicken breasts for 2-3 minutes per side until golden brown.
  6. Transfer the chicken breasts to a baking dish and bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through and the filling is bubbly.
  7. Serve the stuffed chicken breasts hot, garnished with fresh herbs if desired.
  8. Enjoy the delicious combination of tender chicken, sweet apples, and savory prosciutto in every bite!
