  • Boneless Chicken Breast or Thigh

  • Cooked Prosciutto

  • Asiago Cheese

  • Montreal Chicken Spice

  • Salt

  • Olive Oil

  • Shallots

  • Garlic

  • Rosemary

  • White Wine

  • Eggs

  • Heavy Cream (optional)

  • Italian Bread Crumbs


  • Butterfly your desired number of chicken breasts or thighs, and flatten them to approximately ½ inch thick with a meat tenderizer or the bottom of a saucepan.
  • Season each piece with a pinch of salt and a shake of Montreal Chicken Spice.
  • Place a slice or two each of cooked prosciutto and fresh asiago cheese on one-half of the butterflied chicken piece.
  • Roll the chicken up, while trying to have as little prosciutto and cheese exposed as possible (to avoid it leaking out!). Tie the chicken bundle closed with some butcher’s string.
  • (OPTIONAL) for more color and a crispier result, quickly sear the chicken in a hot pan with a tablespoon of olive oil before moving on to the next step.
  • In a large, well-oiled baking dish, place your chicken with the smoothest side of the chicken facing up. Add a splash of white wine, chopped shallots, garlic, and fresh rosemary to the pan.
  • Brush each piece of chicken with a beaten egg and a splash of heavy cream. Sprinkle Italian bread crumbs on top of each piece, liberally.
  • Bake uncovered at 360°F for 25-30 minutes, or until the internal Chicken temperature is at least 165°F.
  • Serve with your favorite side, and enjoy!
