Pancetta and basil wrapped chicken


    6 boneless skinless chicken breast halves
    1 carton (8 ounces) spreadable chive and onion cream cheese
    2 tablespoon butter
    Salt to taste
    6 pancetta strips
    Fresh basil



Flatten chicken breasts to 1/2-in. thickness. Spread 4 tablespoons cream cheese over each. Dot with butter and sprinkle with salt and basil leaves. Roll up the chicken. Wrap each with pancettta strip.

Place, seam side down in a buttered baking pan. Bake, uncovered, at 400° for 35-45 minutes (depends on a chicken thickness). Broil 6 in. from the heat for 5 minutes or until pancetta is crisp. Sprinke parmesan over the top and serve.
