The region of Parma, Italy, produces a savoury deli meat known as prosciutto, which is actually seasoned, salt-cured, air-dried ham. Here it accents mustard and basil and secures them inside the chicken. Serve with grilled potato slices and roasted garlic.

With knife blade held horizontally, cut each chicken breast in half almost but not all the way through; open like book.
In small bowl, combine mustard, minced garlic and pepper; spread over cut sides of chicken breasts. Place 2 basil leaves on 1 side of each breast; fold over. Wrap each breast with prosciutto slice. (Make-ahead: Cover and refrigerate for up to 8 hours.)
Place chicken on greased grill over medium-high heat; close lid and cook, turning once, for about 12 minutes or until no longer pink inside.
