We've taken the hassle out of stuffing for an easier rolled version of traditional chicken cordeon bleu, which is perfect for busy weeknights. Grilled thinly sliced potatoes make a great alternative to roast potatoes when grilling season is at its peak.

Place chicken between waxed paper or plastic wrap; pound to scant 1/2-inch thickness. Top with mustard, Parmesan, basil, prosciutto and pepper. Roll up chicken, securing ends with small skewers. Brush all over with oil.
Heat 1 burner of 2-burner barbecue or 2 burners of 3-burner barbecue to medium-high heat (about 375°F). Place chicken on rack over lit burner(s); grill, uncovered, turning once, until grill-marked, about 3 minutes.
Transfer to lightly greased small rimmed baking sheet. Place on rack over unlit burner; close lid and grill until juices run clear when chicken is pierced and instant-read thermometer inserted in centres reads 170°F, about 12 minutes. Let rest for 2 minutes; remove skewers.
Puff pastry is made by a time-consuming process of folding and rolling out dough brushed with butter. These layers expand during baking, giving it a "puff" effect that's light and flaky—the perfect base for appetizers and desserts.
frozen phyllo puff pastry
Thaw frozen phyllo pastry. In small microwaveable bowl, microwave butter until melted. Place 1 sheet of the phyllo on work surface; keep remaining sheets covered with damp towel (to prevent drying out). Lightly brush phyllo with some of the butter. Top with second sheet of the phyllo; lightly brush with some of the remaining butter. Repeat with remaining phyllo and butter.
Halve layers lengthwise; cut crosswise into thirds to make 6 squares. Press 1 square into bottom and up side of each well of 6-count muffin pan, pointing overhang outward. Bake in 400°F oven until golden, about 6 minutes. Let cool completely in pan. (Make-ahead: Store in airtight container for up to 3 days or freeze for up to 1 month; reheat in 350°F oven until crisp, about 3 minutes.)
