Using a paring knife, cut a horizontal slit in the chicken breasts. Spread half the goat cheese and 2 slices of the prosciutto inside each breast. Salt and pepper both sides of the chicken breasts.

In a large saute pan over medium high heat, saute the chicken breasts in olive oil for 5 minutes each side.

For the chardonnay sauce, move the chicken out of the saute pan and melt the butter over medium heat in the same pan. (leave the chicken juices in there) Add onion and saute for one minute. Add all the remaining ingredients an cook for three minutes. Immediately pour over chicken and serve.
