Italian Stuffed Chicken Breast

These mozzarella cheese stuffed chicken breasts are filled with Italian flavors and wrapped with prosciutto. They are baked in the oven until perfect and I show you my trick for keeping the stuffing from melting out!


  • 4 Chicken Breasts
  • 1-½ cup Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
  • 1 teaspoon Italian Seasoning
  • 8 leaves Large Basil
  • 4 slices Prosciutto
  • ¼ cups Balsamic Vinegar
  • ½ pints Cherry Tomatoes
  • 3 Tablespoons Butter
  • Salt And Pepper, to taste


Preheat oven to 400ºF. Cut a wide and deep pocket in each chicken breast, being sure to not cut all of the way through the bottom.

In a small bowl, mix mozzarella and Italian seasoning.

Lay 2 basil leaves inside each chicken breast pocket, then stuff each one with 1/4 of the cheese mixture, leaving the pocket facing up. Lay a piece of prosciutto over top of each chicken breast and tuck the ends underneath. Place each one in a 9吉 casserole dish.

Pour balsamic vinegar in the baking dish and place tomatoes around the chicken. Bake, uncovered, in preheated oven until an internal thermometer reads 165ºF.

Remove from oven and add butter to the balsamic. Spoon the sauce on top of each chicken breast. Serve.

Italian Sausage Stuffed Chicken Breast

Our family loves a hearty meal. We&rsquove all got great appetites and love bold flavors. That&rsquos why we&rsquove come to love this recipe for Italian Sausage Stuffed Chicken Breast.

The chicken is seasoned simply and cooked just until tender and delicious. This is contrasted with the bold and hearty meatiness of the sausage mixture. I love the way that the peppers and onions give the sausage filling a mild sweetness.

The prep for this meal is super easy. The first step is to butterfly the chicken and pound it to flatten it a little. Then just chop the vegetables and you&rsquore ready to start cooking.

You can serve this dish over pasta or rice. Try pairing it with a nice loaf of Italian or French bread.


  1. Use Italian flavored bread crumbs with grated cheese added
  2. Add any kinds of shredded cheeses just before this is cooked on top
  3. Make sure the baking pan is lightly greased or use parchment paper
  4. Don't overcook these they cook quickly around 35 minutes if everything inside is precooked
  5. Boneless pork or steak works great also for this recipe
  6. Thinly sliced cold boneless meats are easiest for slicing
  7. Always bake seam side done

  • 4 (About 6 oz) Skinless Boneless Chicken Breasts
  • 4 Slices Prosciutto Cotto (Cooked Ham)
  • 4 Thin Slices Fontina Cheese
  • 1/3 Cup All-purpose Flour
  • 2 Eggs, Lightly Beaten
  • 1 1/2 Cups Seasoned Fresh Breadcrumbs
  • 1/3 Cup Grated Parmesan Cheese
  • 1 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Black Pepper
  • 3 Tablespoons Butter
  • 3 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  1. To stuff the chicken breasts, working with one at a time, butterfly breast halves.
  2. Lay each breast half, skinned side up, lengthwise on a cutting board, holding a sharp knife parallel to work surface and beginning on a long side, cut breast almost in half horizontally (not all the way through), then open it like a book.
  3. Cover opened breast halves with a piece of plastic wrap and gently pound each to an even 1/2-inch thickness with a meat pounder or rolling pin.
  4. Remove plastic wrap and cover each opened breast half with 1 slice of ham and 1 slice of cheese, tucking in any protruding ends.
  5. Fold each breast in half to enclose ham and cheese.
  6. Dredge the chicken breasts in the flour and then in the beaten egg.
  7. Mix the breadcrumbs with the grated cheese and season with salt and pepper.
  8. Press breadcrumbs to lightly cover both sides of each chicken breast and refrigerate for an hour to help the crumbs better adhere to the chicken.
  9. Heat the butter and oil in a heavy skillet over moderately high heat until foam subsides.
  10. Saute chicken, turning over once, until golden and cooked through, about 10 to 12 minutes total time.

One comment on &ldquoStuffed Chicken Breast&rdquo

I love your Italian recipes (Italian food being my favorite food)! I’ve tried a number of them, and you have some of the nicest Italian recipes on the web. I would love to find an Italian cooking website that is just for “cooking for two”, as I live and am caregiver of my 87 year-old Dad (who loves my cooking). Anyway, I was checking out this recipe above. I have always loved “breaded” chicken breasts. For many years, I would always dredge my breasts through flour, then through the egg, and then thru the breadcrumbs, but I was never happy with the way it tasted. Why? Because I could always taste the egg in the final dish, and that ruins it for me. I like eggs for breakfast and that’s about it. But any egg flavor in a main dish, and I’m not happy.

I discovered a way to remedy this, and you might want to give it a try sometime, because it tastes great, and you can’t taste the egg at all. Instead of dredging in flour, and then egg, I take 2 tablespoons of flour, crack one egg onto it, and whip it around on a plate until it’s nice and smooth (no lumps). So you’ve got this gooey flour/egg mixture, and then you dredge the chicken breasts through that, and then dredge them through the bread crumbs (I use Panko because they give the chicken a nice crunch – not soggy). I have also found that when you cook it this way, the breading doesn’t slip off as easy when cooking. Just sayin’…

Experience the joyof italian cuisine.

The essence of Italian cooking today is simplicity. One uses the freshest seasonal ingredients and basic cooking techniques to simply enhance the natural flavor of the food.

  • 2 package LGCM Italian Romano Chicken Breast (pounded out thin)
  • 1/2 cup Ricotta Cheese
  • 2 Tbsp Parmesan Cheese
  • 16 oz Spinach (cooked)
  • 1/2 cup Cherry Tomatoes (diced)
  • 1 package Mushrooms (diced and cooked)
  • 1 tsp Garlic (minced)
  • 1 Tbsp Butter
  • 2 Tbsp Butter
  • 2 Tbsp Flour
  • 1/2 cup White Wine
  • 1 cup Chicken Broth

Lay the chicken breast out flat after it has been pounded out.

Leaving space on the outside of the chicken, spread the cheeses, then spinach, cherry tomatoes and mushrooms on top of the Chicken. Once everything is on the chicken roll the chicken up and close it with toothpicks.

In a sauté pan add 1 tsp. of garlic & 1 Tbsp. of butter. Heat to a medium heat add the chicken to the pan. Cook for about 10-12 minutes or until the Chicken is fully cooked (juices will run clear.)

After removing the chicken, add the butter & flour to the same pan. Keep on medium heat, and let cook until you reach a paste-like consistency. Whisk in the white wine & broth and simmer until sauces reaches a sauce-like consistency.

Mix Italian sausage & hot pepper cheese together in a small bowl

Pound out the chicken to flat pieces to make for easy stuffing.

Spread the Italian Sausage mix evenly on top of the chicken breast and cut the breast in 1/2 for easier cooking.

Roll up the breast & close with toothpicks. Repeat with other breast.

Heat a sauté pan to a medium high heat, add olive oil & garlic.

Pan sear the chicken on all sides.

Place your chicken on a rack with chicken broth, in bottom of pan & set in oven. Bake for about 30-35 minutes or until it is fully cooked.

In the same pan that you seared the chicken, add remaining ingredients, ring to boil & then reduce to a simmer for 15-20 minutes.

Remove chicken from the oven, take out toothpicks & place on a plate. Add the sauce on top and ENJOY!

Side Dishes to Serve:

I served buttered noodles with steamed broccoli alongside this recipe. But I think you could serve spaghetti or even sauteed zucchini. My recipe for zucchini casserole would make a perfect side dish as well as Fresh Tomato Salad.
