  • 8 slices San Daniele® Prosciutto
  • 4 medium chicken breasts*
  • 1 pinch black pepper
  • 1 pinch kosher salt
  • 3 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
  • 1/4 cup white wine (or replace with chicken broth or water)
  • 1-2 tbsp dijon mustard
  • 2 tsp honey
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream (or whole milk)
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice about 1/2 of a medium lemon
  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh basil or 2 tsp dried basil


  1. Preheat oven to 375° F and oil or butter an oven-proof dish of approximately 9" x 13" or so in size.

  2. Salt and pepper the chicken then wrap prosciutto around chicken breasts (2 pieces of prosciutto per chicken breast) with the ends of the prosciutto meeting on the bottom so it remains in place. Place in greased dish and bake for 20-25 minutes or until chicken has reached an internal temperature of 165° F.

  3. Meanwhile, make the Creamy Mustard Sauce. In a small sauce pan, heat butter over medium heat and add garlic, cooking and stirring occasionally for 2 minutes. Add white wine and reduce for 3-5 minutes. Add mustard, honey, cream, and lemon juice. Cook for 3-5 more minutes to allow flavours to combine. Add most of the basil, reserving a few pieces to sprinkle on top of the prosciutto-wrapped chicken.

  4. Pour sauce into chicken pan and serve immediately.

Recipe Notes

* If your chicken breasts are on the larger side, either cut the chicken lengthwise and reduce the baking time slightly or wrap in more prosciutto and increase the baking time slightly.
