Directions

  • 1 Heat coals or gas grill for direct heat. Carefully cut a horizontal slit in each chicken breast half, making a pocket when top of chicken is lifted back.
  • 2 Spread 1 tablespoon cheese inside each chicken pocket. Top with folded slices of prosciutto. Close chicken around filling, being sure that most of the filling is enclosed. Brush dressing on chicken.
  • 3 Cover and grill chicken 4 to 5 inches from medium-high heat 10 to 12 minutes, brushing occasionally with dressing and turning once, until juice of chicken is no longer pink when centers of thickest pieces are cut.
