Why is it a favorite meal? Not only is this dish super quick to make, but most of the ingredients can already be found in the fridge. I've made this for quick weeknight meals as well as weekend dinner parties. I enjoy simple and delicious...hope you do too!

Prosciutto Wrapped Chicken
makes two servings

2 tablespoons olive oil
sea salt and cracked black pepper
4 tablespoons store bought pesto (black olive tapenade works great too)
2 chicken breast filets
6 slices parmesan cheese
6 slices prosciutto
1 pound asparagus (or any other seasonal vegetable)

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Drizzle olive oil on baking sheet and lay down prosciutto, slightly overlapping each other. Place chicken breasts on top of prosciutto and top each with pesto and parmesan.
Fold edges of prosciutto over chicken breasts.

Bake for 20 minutes.

While chicken is baking, saute asparagus with olive oil, sea salt and pepper to taste.
