The salty bite from the prosciutto and therefore the gooey, melty mozzarella really make these something special.

The mozzarella cheese also acts as a binder and helps hold the spinach and prosciutto together, tucked neatly inside these stuffed chicken breasts.

And that paprika and Parmesan combo on top helps these get beautifully browned within the oven. My husband actually thought they’d been broiled!
