What's for dinner tonight? Prosciutto-Wrapped Chicken, Stuffed with Herb Ricotta

A nice surprise inside this chicken breast

Prosciutto-Wrapped Chicken,Stuffed with Herb Ricotta

1/2 cup ricotta
Salt and pepper
3 tablespoons grated Parmigiano-Reggiano
1 small clove garlic, grated or chopped
1 tablespoon finely chopped flat-leaf parsley
A few leaves basil, chopped
A couple sprigs fresh thyme, finely chopped
4 small pieces skinless, boneless chicken breast, butterflied
EVOO – Extra Virgin Olive Oil, for drizzling
4 thin slices prosciutto 
A splash of white wine
1 tablespoon butter
Yields: 4
Preheat oven to 400ºF. In a bowl, season the ricotta with salt and pepper. Stir in the Parmigiano-Reggiano, garlic, parsley, basil and thyme. Place some of the ricotta mixture on each butterflied piece of chicken and fold the breast over. Drizzle with EVOO and wrap with prosciutto.
Heat an ovenproof skillet with a drizzle of EVOO. Add the chicken bundles and brown over medium-high heat, turning once, for 4-6 minutes. Transfer to the oven to cook through, 12-15 minutes.
Remove the chicken from the pan and deglaze the pan with wine. Swirl in the butter. Spoon the sauce over the chicken to serve.
Serve this dish with an arugula-tomato salad alongside.
