Ingredients

8
large boneless, skinless chicken breasts halves (about 2 1/2 pounds)
1/2
cup herb-and-garlic spreadable cheese
4
ounces thinly sliced prosciutto or fully cooked ham
1/2
cup zesty Italian dressing

  • 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.

Expert Tips

Turn the chicken with a grill spatula instead of a fork or tongs so the cheese filling doesn't squeeze out as the chicken cooks.
