      This was a nice change of pace from the standard chicken breast recipe. I used a spicy spreadable cream cheese that added a nice kick. Sometimes the texture of pine nuts just doesn't work for me so I used toasted almonds instead of pine nuts. Also, didn't use the sauce and still had a great flavor. Nice entree to serve when you have company

      This came out nice. I substituted pancetta for the proscuitto and to replicate the crispy effect, I opened the foil towards the end of the cooking time. I left off the sauce, because it tasted really bland to me, I think some spices could have kicked it up a bit. But I couldn't be bothered at the time. Very nice without. I substituted walnuts for the pine nuts because mine were spoiled. Nice nutty flavour.
