  • Heat oven to 350°. Spread chicken cutlets on a cutting board; if you can't find thin-sliced chicken, simply slice 4 thick cutlets in half to form 8 thin cutlets. Save 4 for another use.

Instructions Checklist
  • Place 2 slices smoked turkey on each piece of chicken. Top each with one slice folded provolone cheese and 2 of the basil leaves. Roll up chicken to enclose filling, folding any overlapping edges of turkey over cheese (see tip, at right). Secure closed with toothpicks. Season with salt and pepper.
