  1. Use a knife or grater to sharpen the thick ends of the rosemary sprigs. Soak sprigs in water for at least 10 minutes.
  2. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
  3. Layer each chicken breast with 1 slice fontina and 1 slice prosciutto. Roll tightly, and skewer each with a rosemary sprig to secure.
  4. In a bowl, whisk together the wine, broth, oil and pepper. Pour into a medium baking dish. Place rolled chicken breasts in the dish. Place 2 garlic halves under each breast.
  5. Bake 25 minutes in the preheated oven, until chicken juices run clear. Remove from baking dish, reserving sauce, and allow to stand 5 minutes.
  6. Transfer remaining sauce to a saucepan, and bring to a boil. Drizzle over chicken to serve. Season chicken with salt to taste.


  • Note
  • After the rolled chicken breasts have been arranged in the dish with the sauce (Step 4), the dish may be covered and placed in the refrigerator to allow the chicken to marinate for up to 24 hours. After marinating, allow the dish to sit for a few minutes before proceeding with Step 5.

I had my doubts when I made this. Also didn't think I could secure the chicken with a rosemary sprig. In the end I used chicken thigh for more flavors, and rolled the rosemary in the center an...

This is a great recipe! ChefSingleDad, come over to my house and cook for me some night! I didn't have any fresh rosemary springs so I added about 1 tsp dried rosemary to the marinade. I put ...

This is fabulous! I have made it many times and even my picky 12 yr. old daughter likes it. I have used flattened chicken tenderloin pieces instead of the breast halves at times. They're smal...

I've made this twice now and love it! Each time I've used smoked mozzarella instead of fontina, and it's tasted delicious. Browning the chicken before baking did make all the difference in appea...

What a great recipe. Flavours are wonderful and the sprig of rosemary is an addition that has real flair. Thanks for the tips on preventing the rosemary from blackening. I'm going to research...
