  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).

  • Layer each chicken breast with 1 slice fontina and 1 slice prosciutto. Roll tightly, and skewer each with a rosemary sprig to secure.

  • 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.

  • Bake 25 minutes in the preheated oven, until chicken juices run clear. Remove from baking dish, reserving sauce, and allow to stand 5 minutes.

  • 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.
