Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease an ovenproof baking dish; set aside.

  • Combine chopped apple and the 1/8 teaspoon apple pie spice in a small bowl; set aside.

  • Place the chicken breasts between two sheets of heavy plastic (resealable freezer bags work well) on a solid, level surface. Firmly pound the chicken with the smooth side of a meat mallet to a thickness of 1/4 inch. Place one slice of prosciutto on each chicken breast. Place 1/4 of the apple mixture on each chicken breast. Roll up each breast and secure with a toothpick. Sprinkle the 1/2 teaspoon apple pie spice all over outside of chicken breasts and place into the prepared baking dish.

  • Bake the chicken breasts, uncovered, in the preheated oven until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about for 25-30 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

  • When chicken is almost done, melt butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Whisk in flour to make a smooth paste. Whisk in milk and pepper; bring to a boil. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly, about 5 minutes. Serve sauce over chicken.

I altered this version quite a bit but mine turned out amazing! I didn't bother with the sauce or apple pie spice. I just stuffed the chicken breasts with chopped granny smith apples 2 thin slices of brie and the prosciutto then added a splash of balsamic vinaigrette to each chicken breast before baking. My husband and I both LOVED it and it will be making regular appearances on our menu now! Read More

Just okay for me but maybe it was my fault. Our chicken breasts were enormous so the chicken to apple/prosciutto ratio was all off. Next time I'd use smaller chicken breasts or more apple stuff. Gravy didn't really add anything... Would make again with different ratios and a different gravy. Thanks! Read More

This was a great recipe. Just add some white cheddar more apples and salt. The white cheddar gives it just enough sharpness. I just brought it to a couples get together and it went over well. Read More

I cooked this for my kids and myself and they liked and so did I! This was not bad at all. I added just a little bit of shredded mozzarella. I also used more apples and apple pie spice than the recipe called for. I used Gala apples but I think that I will use an apple with a little more flavor next time. I also sprinkled the rolled chicken breast with a touch of season salt. Otherwise pretty good! Read More

I drizzled maple syrup over the chicken before I put it in the oven and then more before serving as the sauce was inedible. Very tasty chicken - but avoid the sauce. Read More

This recipe was lovely -- very light and fresh-tasting. I would definitely recommend a few changes though. For one I think "apple pie spice" means different things for different people. I used cinnamon mostly but also some ground cloves and allspice. I couldn't find the nutmeg but a little bit of that would have also been good. Second I used way way more apples than this recipe called for and I still thought a little more would have been yummy. Definitely be liberal with your apples. I chose three varietals: gala granny smith and golden delicious. They went well together. Finally I think the sauce could have used some salt. All in all this was a fantastic recipe-- what a great combo! So thanks to the author for sharing! Read More
