Chicken Prosciutto Bundles

1/8 cup seasoned breadcrumbs
3 TBLS olive oil
1/4 lb imported provolone cheese, sliced
1/4 lb imported prosciutto ham, sliced thin
1/2 lb fresh baby spinach
2 garlic cloves diced
1 medium shallot, diced small
2 TBLS no salt butter-melted
1/4 lb bacon
3 boneless chicken breasts
salt, pepper, nutmeg

Butterfly 3 boneless chicken breasts and pound flat. Place prosciutto onto butterflied chicken pieces, place provolone on top of the ham. Mix the melted butter with shallot, garlic, a sprinkle of nutmeg, salt & pepper and toss together. Then resume layering this mixture onto the cheese layer. Now add the baby spinach leaves on top of the cheese layer. Sprinkle seasoned breadcrumbs onto the spinach layer. Drizzle olive oil onto crumbs. Now roll each chicken breast and wrap with bacon both horizontally and vertically.

Pop into 350 degree oven and bake for 45 minutes.

The chicken bundles should be golden brown and the bacon just a bit crisp. Do not overcook. Enjoy!
