Start to Finish 30 mins
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.

From the Test KitchenServing Suggestion:
  • Wilted greens such as Napa cabbage or escarole.
Change-Up:
  • Substitute blue cheese for the semi-soft cheese with garlic and fine herbs, and used dried cherries in place of dates.
