Summertime Chicken

Now that summer's getting into full swing we're on the lookout for new grill recipes. I found this one in an old recipe notebook and can't believe I've never tried it before, it sounds delish! I definitely plan on testing it out soon.

Grilled Prosciutto Wrapped Chicken

4 medium boneless, skinless chicken breast halves (1 1/2 lbs)
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
12 large basil leaves
1/4 lb fresh mozzarella, thinly sliced
4 thin slices prosciutto
1 tbs olive oil

Cut through each piece of chicken to make a 'book'. Sprinkle with salt and pepper, layer inside with basil leaves and fresh mozzarella, close chicken and wrap with slice of prosciutto. Brush with olive oil. On medium heat, grill chicken breasts covered until they are well marked, about 4 minutes. Flip chicken every few minutes for 10-12 minutes or until done (165 degrees). You can also substitute goat cheese and spinach for a different twist!
