    These Chicken Stuffed Shells are unlike any other stuffed shells recipe you’ve made. Wrapped in prosciutto and topped with a creamy brie sauce, these stuffed pasta shells will impress your dinner guests any night of the week!

    Chicken stuffed shells is a recipe inspired by the winning recipe of a San Giorgio cooking competition I had the pleasure of judging. Instead of boring, traditional stuffed pasta shells with ricotta, ground beef and tomato sauce, she used tender diced chicken, artichokes and spinach smothered in a silky brie sauce.

    Balsamic vinegar adds a bit of acidity for bite and prosciutto, a savory aspect. Finish it off with a rich and decadent creamy brie sauce. It reminded me of my ever-so-popular Seafood Stuffed Shells that everyone goes ga-ga over, so I knew I had to make my own version.

    My version of how to make stuffed shells is slightly different than the winning chicken stuffed shells recipe but I like to think mine is just as likely to win over the crowd.

    I added prosciutto as a way to balance the rich brie sauce and more flavor to the stuffed pasta shells. Chicken can be kinda bland, ya know? Plus, I just really love adding prosciutto to my recipes. I mean, it is bacon and bacon makes everything better.

    My favorite part of these chicken stuffed shells is the brie sauce. What is brie? Considered the “Queen of Cheeses”, brie is a soft cow’s-milk cheese, that melts easily and has a rich, buttery flavor.

    You’ve probably had it on a cheese platter or even in a delicious turkey and cheese sandwich before. Since it melts so easily, it’s an ideal cheese for making a delicious white sauce to pair with these and other stuffed pasta shells. Honestly, I’m not sure why it isn’t used more frequently.

    For this stuffed shells recipe, the brie sauce complements prosciutto for a decadent and savory flavor. There is a reason this recipe won awards – my mouth is watering just thinking about it!

    Tools for making Chicken Stuffed Shells:

    Wood cutting board – wood won’t dull your knives like plastic and if treated properly, has natural antimicrobial properties.

    Good knife – Global is my favorite! They are worth the price, I promise. I am kind of obsessed with them and store them tucked away so no one else can use them. Including hubby. Hands off my good stuff!

    Whisks– I buy whisks in multiple sizes. You never know which one you will need.
