6 chicken breast halves boned, skinned and pounded
3 to 4 tbsp. olive oil
1 small onion, chopped
2 garlic heads, separated into cloves, blanched, peeled and chopped
2 oz. proscuitto, chopped (or cooked bacon)
1/2 tsp. dried oregano
1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup fresh breadcrumbs
2 tbsp. butter
1 cup chicken broth
3/4 cup white wine
1/2 cup cream
string or toothpicks

In a large skillet, heat 2 tablespoon olive oil and add the onion; cook 1 minute. Add garlic and prosciutto and cook until prosciutto is lightly browned, about 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from heat; cool slightly. Add oregano, parsley, Parmesan cheese, bread crumbs, salt and pepper to taste; mix well. Add just enough of remaining olive oil to moisten. Divide the stuffing into 6 portions and spread evenly over each chicken piece. Roll each one up, tucking the edges in and tie with string or secure with toothpicks. Dust lightly with flour. Heat butter in skillet, add chicken rolls and cook them until light golden brown. Lower heat, add 1/2 cup chicken broth and 1/4 cup wine. Cover and simmer until tender, about 10 to 15 minutes. Transfer to a serving dish, remove toothpicks or strings and keep warm. Add remaining broth and wine to pan and bring to a boil. When broth has reduced to about 1/2 cup, blend in cream and cook until the sauce has thickened. Pour over chicken rolls and serve.

Personal Notes:
Mom used to make this chicken dish for special occasions. She would always served it with rice pilaf, a salad and some type of green vegetable. Very simple, yet very elegant!
