This Easy Prosciutto-Wrapped Chicken Is a Real Showstopper
If you usually have some sort of “baked chicken” night in your weekly meal plan, you need to know about this recipe. With salty, crispy prosciutto and a buttery sage sauce, it’ll blow your standard, dry chicken dinner out of the water.
If you’ve ever had saltimbocca, which is traditionally made with thin slices of veal rolled up with prosciutto and sage and cooked in a buttery white wine sauce, then this recipe will sound familiar to you. It’s essentially a chicken saltimbocca, without any of the hassle — there’s no pounding or rolling necessary here.
All you have to do is wrap each (brined!) chicken breast in a couple slices of prosciutto, brush the tops with butter or olive oil, and bake until the chicken is cooked through and the prosciutto is crispy. While the chicken is baking, you can make the sauce — a heavenly combination of butter, garlic, sage, red pepper flakes, and white wine — on the stovetop. Spoon the sauce over the cooked chicken and dinner is ready!
To round out the chicken, serve it with some roasted veggies or a simple green salad on the side. And since there will be plenty of that delicious sauce to sop up after, be sure to have some crusty bread on the table too!
