Chicken Rolls with prosciutto and goat cheese

6 thin slices chicken breasts, pounded slightly if necessary 

6 thin slices prosciutto

5 - 6 oz. goat cheese, room temperature

salt and pepper to taste

2 tsp. spice rub of choice 

2 Tbsp. olive oil


Preheat oven to 375F.  Place chicken on parchment, sprinkle both sides with spice rub, salt and pepper to taste.  Lay a slice of prosciutto on each breast and spread each with some of the goat cheese.  Roll up like jelly rolls.

Heat olive oil in a saut√© pan and sear the rolls, seam side down until golden on all sides.  Place in an ovenproof dish and bake about 12 minutes, turning once, until the chicken is cooked through.  Serve with roasted onion vinaigrette.

small red onion, cut in half crosswise

3/4C olive oil

3 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar

2 Tbsp. chopped fresh chives

salt and pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 350F.  Place the onion and olive oil in a small ovenproof dish and cover tightly.  Bake for 30 – 40 minutes, or until the onion is soft.  Let the onion cool in the olive oil, and then remove the onion, reserving the oil.  Julienne the onion and place in a medium bowl.  Add the balsamic vinegar and slowly whisk in the reserved olive oil.  Add the chives and season with salt and pepper to taste.
