Step 1

Drizzle 1 tablespoon of the olive oil in a skillet and bring to medium-high heat.

Step 2

Toss in the green peppers, tomatoes and garlic and cook until pepper is soft; stir in 1/4 cup of the asiago cheese and set aside.

Step 3

Slice the breasts in half diagonally and season with the garlic powder, salt and pepper to taste.

Step 4

Place a slice of ham over two of the sliced breast pieces.

Step 5

Divide the green pepper mixture in two and place over the slice of ham.

Step 6

Top with the other 2 chicken breast pieces.

Step 7

Sprinkle the oregano over top and tie together with butcher’s twine so the stuffed breasts will stay together.

Step 8

Sprinkle 1 tablespoon of the olive oil in the same skillet you used to cook the peppers and bring to medium-high heat.

Step 9

Brown the stuffed breasts on both sides.

Step 10

Meanwhile fit a baking pan with a wire rack and place the stuffed breasts over the rack.

Step 11

Fill the bottom of this baking pan with about 1/4 inch of water.

Step 12

Place into a preheated 375 degree Fahrenheit oven and cook uncovered about 25 to 30 minutes, depending on thickness of the breasts, until juices run clear when poked with a toothpick.

Step 13

Mix together the alfredo sauce and remaining asiago cheese and heat in a microwave until hot.

Step 14

Pour 1/2 of this mixture over each stuffed breast.

This is not only delicious it is one that makes for great presentation, I love when a dish comes to the table looking as good as it tastes! I used daughters awesome Alfredo sauce, had to sub the cheese but followed through as posted with wonderful results. This one is so a company quality meal that impresses. A keeper!

Delicious!! So many great flavours, textures, and colours. I made mine with red peppers instead of green and it turned out great. This recipe is a keeper!!!

I thought it was about time I got in here and got caught up on some of my reviews. This one is the first one that came to mind because I just had it last week. It is so delicious that I can't even begin to tell you how much we loved it! We had it with egg noodles and Alfredo sauce and snap peas as sides. I won't forget this in a hurry. I have stashed it in a special place to make again for company. Very impressive and full of flavors straight from Italy!
