8 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts halves (about 2 1/2 pounds)
1/2 cup herb-and-garlic spreadable cheese (we used laughing cow)
4 ounces thinly sliced prosciutto or fully cooked ham (we used ham)
1/2 cup zesty Italian dressing
Four thumbs up to Ms Betty Crocker for this low carb, low cal keeper recipe. 4 ingredients and was ready in no time. We scaled the recipe down to only the two of us and there's still leftovers. Original recipe serves 8.
Heat coals or gas grill (we used Foreman grill) to proper heating temperature. Carefully cut a horizontal slit in each chicken breast half, making a pocket when top of chicken is lifted back. Do not cut through.
Spread 1 tablespoon cheese inside of each pocket. Top with folded slices of prosciutto (we used low sodium ham). Close chicken around filling, being sure that most of the filling is enclosed. Brush the Italian dressing on the chicken.
Cover and grill chicken 4-5 inches from medium-high heat for 10-12 minutes (even less with Foreman grill), brushing occasionally with dressing and turning once, until juice of chicken is no longer pink when centers of the thickest pieces are cut.
Suggestion: turn with spatula instead of tongs or fork to keep cheese inside.
