I made a different version of this recipe a few months back, but wanted to dial up the flavor. This balsamic marinade adds so much flavor to the chicken and compliments the pesto and prosciutto. Next time, I will definitely be adding cheese- I honestly don’t know what I was thinking there! Any-who, this makes a great prep-ahead meal for the week or makes a great meal for date night!
