I found this recipe in a cookbook fromt the Junior League of Portland. I haven't made it yet but it looks awesome. I wanted to make sure I saved it.

Wow! This is like Chicken Cordon Bleu taken to the next level! Great combination - very tasty. I served with rice and steamed broccoli for a very nice meal.
Very tasty! The only substitute I made was white wine instead of sherry. It was delicious. I also tied the chicken instead of using toothpicks but wished that I didn't because it was hard to get to the string after it was cooked! :) I made this for Went To Market. Thanks!
I served this tonight for dinner and my DH loved it. In fact, he indicated he would have enjoyed it without the sauce as well, which might be helpful in reducing prep time on a week night. I am a big fan of prosciutto and gruyere, so this was a winner in our house! I did not have sherry, and used Madiera Wine instead.
