Prosciutto-Wrapped Chicken with Balsamic Date Sauce

Fancy looking food doesn’t have to be difficult. Cook up with prosciutto-wrapped chicken with a balsamic date sauce in under 20 minutes.

Prosciutto-Wrapped Chicken with Balsamic Date Sauce

How do you make cheese stuffed and bacon wrapped chicken fancy? You use prosciutto instead of bacon and slather it with some balsamic-date sauce. This chicken may look and sound fancy but it is also easy to make, with the hardest part being not eating the prosciutto before wrapping it around each piece of chicken (maybe you should buy extra just in case). After cooking the chicken to golden perfection, balsamic vinegar and chopped dates are combined in the same skillet to absorb all the leftover chicken, prosciutto, and cheese flavors. Spoon over chicken and enjoy.

One year ago: Apple Cinnamon Pretzels

Three years ago: Basil Butter


Serves 4


2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

Salt and pepper, to taste

3 oz. semi-soft cheese with garlic and herbs

4 thin slices of prosciutto

1 Tbsp olive oil

1/2 cup pitted whole dates, chopped

1/2 cup balsamic vinegar

1/3 cup water


  1. Butterfly cut the chicken breasts in half and season with salt and pepper. Top each half with one-fourth the cheese. Wrap prosciutto around cheese and tuck ends under chicken.
  2. In large nonstick skillet heat oil over medium-high heat. Cook chicken, cheese side up first, for 4 to 5 minutes. Flip and cook 4 to 5 minutes, until golden brown and no pink remains in chicken. Transfer to platter; cover to keep warm.
  3. Turn down to medium heat. Add dates, vinegar, and water to skillet and cook, uncovered, for 5 to 7 minutes, or until sauce is thickened and dates are soft, stirring to scrape up browned bits.
  4. Spoon sauce over chicken and serve.
