Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Using a paring knife, make a horizontal slit in wide end of each of 4 chicken breasts to create a pocket (do not cut all the way through).

  • Wrap 1 slice Brie and 1 basil leaf in one slice ham. Repeat to make 4 bundles; insert into pockets. If desired, refrigerate, covered, overnight.

  • Season chicken with salt and pepper. Heat olive oil in a large ovenproof skillet over medium heat. Add chicken breasts, smooth sides down. Cook until golden brown, 4 to 6 minutes; turn chicken. Add white wine, water, and 4 basil leaves.

  • Transfer skillet to oven; bake until chicken is cooked through, 4 to 6 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes before slicing. Serve with pan sauce.
