Pancetta-Wrapped Chicken with Glazed Date Sauce

Ingredients
2
8 ounces skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
1/2
5.2-ounce package semi-soft cheese with garlic and fines herbes
4
thin slices pancetta or prosciutto (about 1 ounce)
1
tablespoon olive oil
1/2
cup pitted whole dates, chopped
1/2
cup balsamic vinegar
1/3
cup water
 
Salt and ground black pepper (optional)

Directions

  1. Cut chicken in half horizontally. Top each half with one-fourth the cheese. Wrap pancetta around cheese; tuck ends under chicken.
  2. In large nonstick skillet heat oil over medium-high heat. Cook chicken, cheese side up first, over medium heat for 4 to 5 minutes. Turn; cook 4 to 5 minutes, until golden brown and no pink remains in chicken. Transfer to platter; cover to keep warm.
  3. Remove skillet from heat. Add dates, vinegar, and water to skillet. Return to heat. Cook, uncovered, for 5 to 7 minutes, until sauce is thickened and dates are soft, stirring to scrape up browned bits.
  4. Spoon sauce over chicken. Sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper.
