Directions

Butterfly each chicken breast. Season inside with salt and pepper. Layer the slice prosciutto to cover the inside, followed by cheese slice, sun dried tomato and 2 sage leaves for each breast. Roll each breast tightly closed. Sear the chicken with oil on all sides, and place on a sheet pan. Bake the chicken in the oven at 475 until the center of each piece registers 165 degrees. Cook the fettuccine in salted boiling water according to package directions. For cream sauce, heat butter. Cook onion and garlic in butter until softened. Add the bay leaf and deglaze with white wine. Reduce by half. Add the rest of the cream sauce ingredients, and simer until semi-thick. Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper to taste. Remove bay leaf, and add pasta to pan with sauce, tossing to coat. Place fettuccine and sauce on plate. Slice each breast into 4-5 pieces and fan out on top. Garnish with basil pesto and additional parmesan to taste.
