Grilled Limoncello Chicken
Limoncello Chicken:
4 small Raley's boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 1½ lbs.)
1/2 cup limoncello (lemon liqueur)
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
3/4 tsp. crushed red pepper
3/4 tsp. salt
2 medium shallots, minced
4 strips prosciutto (In our Deli)
chopped fresh rosemary

Limoncello Raisins:
2/3 cup limoncello
1/2 cup golden raisins
2 (1/4- inch thick) lemon slices, seeds removed

Prep: 25 minutes, Marinate: overnight
Cook: 25 minutes, Serves: 4

1. Place chicken in a large resealable bag; add limoncello, lemon juice, red pepper, salt and shallots. Seal bag and turn several times to mix ingredients; refrigerate overnight.

2. Remove chicken and discard marinade. Wrap prosciutto around chicken breasts and secure with toothpicks. Grill over medium heat for about 15 minutes or until chicken is cooked through and prosciutto is crispy, turning several times.

3. While chicken is cooking, stir together all limoncello raisin ingredients in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes or until most of the limoncello is absorbed by the raisins. Spoon over chicken and sprinkle with rosemary. Serve over cooked polenta, if you like.

I tried this receipe but really didn't like it. The shallots overpowered the flavor. I don't be making this recipe again.
