Prosciutto-Wrapped Chicken Breasts

It’s been a while since the last food blog and while I have been cooking, nothing has floored me enough to actually share it…until now.

Friends, these Prosciutto-Wrapped Chicken breasts are out-of-this-world incredible. To make it even better, they are super easy to make and don’t even require a lot of ingredients!

Prosciutto-Wrapped ChickenIngredients:

  • 4  slices  prosciutto
  • 2  tablespoons  fresh oregano, chopped (or 1 1/2 teaspoons dried)
  • 4  6-ounce boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • black pepper
  • 1  tablespoon  olive oil
  • 8  cloves garlic, unpeeled

Directions:

  1. Lay the prosciutto on a cutting board or plate and sprinkle with the oregano.
  2. Season the chicken with ½ teaspoon pepper. Lay each breast on a slice of prosciutto and wrap the prosciutto around the chicken.
  3. Heat the oil and garlic in a large skillet over medium heat.
  4. Add the chicken and cook until the prosciutto is crisp and the chicken is cooked through, 7 to 8 minutes per side. Transfer the chicken and garlic to plates.

I paired this with veggies and it was terrific! Also, I did buy a pepper marinade and let the chicken soak in it for 30 minutes prior to making in leu of sprinkling pepper on the breasts. The marinade gave it a little extra flavor.

Enjoy!
