This dish offers a delightful combination of tender chicken and flavorful Italian charcuterie, making it a perfect choice for a special dinner or gathering.


  • Chicken breasts halved and rolled with
  • Prosciutto
  • Sweet capiocola
  • Sopressata
  • Garlic
  • Italian seasoning
  • Olive oil


  1. Prepare the Chicken:
    • Begin by halving the chicken breasts horizontally to create thinner cutlets. This helps them cook evenly and roll easily.
    • Lay the chicken cutlets flat on a clean surface. If the cutlets are too thick, gently pound them with a meat mallet to achieve a uniform thickness, which is ideal for rolling.
  2. Layer the Charcuterie:
    • On each chicken cutlet, lay a slice of prosciutto, sweet capicola, and sopressata. The combination of these cured meats will infuse the chicken with rich, savory flavors.
    • Lightly season each layered cutlet with minced garlic and a sprinkle of Italian seasoning for an extra herbaceous note.
  3. Roll the Chicken:
    • Carefully roll up each chicken cutlet with the charcuterie inside, securing the rolls with toothpicks or kitchen twine to keep them intact during cooking. This will ensure that the flavors from the charcuterie meld beautifully with the chicken.
  4. Prepare for Baking:
    • Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).
    • Drizzle olive oil over the rolled chicken cutlets. This will help to keep the chicken moist and add a subtle fruitiness to the dish.
  5. Bake the Chicken:
    • Place the prepared chicken rolls in a baking dish.
    • Bake in the preheated oven for about 25-30 minutes, or until the chicken is thoroughly cooked and the internal temperature reaches 165°F (75°C). The exact cooking time may vary depending on the thickness of your chicken rolls.
  6. Serving:
    • Once cooked, remove the chicken from the oven and let it rest for a few minutes. This allows the juices to redistribute, ensuring a moist and tender bite.
    • Carefully remove the toothpicks or twine.
    • Slice the chicken rolls into medallions to display the beautiful spiral of meat and charcuterie inside.
  7. Presentation:
    • Serve the Charcuterie Chicken on a platter, garnished with fresh herbs or a drizzle of olive oil for an extra touch of elegance.
    • This dish pairs wonderfully with a side of roasted vegetables, a fresh salad, or some crusty bread to complete the meal.
