Happy Friday slash Post-Halloween slash First Day of November! I hope you all enjoyed a candy-filled Hallowed eve and are currently still in a sugar hangover.  Today’s recipe features a protein-packed dish that may help assuage any chocolate guilt: prosciutto-wrapped chicken breasts!  These are healthy, flavorful, and combine two of my faves in the carnivorous world.

Your grocery list:

1 pack 6oz chicken breasts (usually come with 2-3 breasts)

1 package Prosciutto slices ($5 at Target)

Garlic/Oregano

A scrumptious side (I went with steamed Edamame in Picture 1 and homemade Caprese salad with Spanish olives in Picture 2).

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and cover a baking sheet in cooking spray.  Sprinkle oregano and garlic on each side of the chicken breasts.  Next take 1 slice of prosciutto and wrap around the middle of the first chicken breast.  If you have enough prosciutto, feel free to take a second and wrap around the same breast, either doubling over the first layer or wrap at an angle so the prosciutto covers more of the entire breast.  Repeat with remaining chicken breasts and prosciutto slices.  If desired, sprinkle another layer of oregano over the breasts and place on baking sheet.  Bake for 20 minutes and check.  The first time I did this, I baked three breasts and upon checking at the 20 minute mark, had to bake for an additional 10 minutes.  Remember, the prosciutto is insulating the chicken and while keeping it SUPER moist, also prolongs the baking process.  When appropriate, remove from the oven, pair with that healthy side and enjoy.  These will smell AMAZING so you may get some scavengers if anyone else is around.  You’ve been forewarned.
