Prosciutto Wrapped Rosemary Chicken

Submitted by: Angela LeMoine

1 1/2- 2 lbs thin sliced chicken breasts
3 Tbsp finely chopped fresh rosemary
4-5 garlic cloves, sliced
2 slices of prosciutto per piece of chicken
salt & pepper

olive oil

Directions

Preheat oven to 375.
 
Toss together in a bowl the chicken, rosemary, garlic and a little bit of salt and pepper. Cover and refrigerate for an hour.
 
On a clean surface, lay a couple slice of prosciutto down. Lay the chicken on top of the prosciutto. Roll up so the majority of the prosciutto is on the outside of the chicken. Secure the chicken closed with a few toothpicks. Repeat with all the chicken.
 
Heat up a large sauté pan over medium high heat. Add in a few drizzles of olive oil. Place the wrapped chicken breasts into the pan (do not overcrowd the pan) and brown on each side.
 
If your sauté pan is oven safe you can pop the pan right into the oven for about 4-6 minutes or until the juices run clear. If the pan isn't oven safe, place the chicken onto a baking sheet. The time will depend on the thickness of the chicken, if you aren't sure how to tell when cooked through test with a meat thermometer.
