I’m in love with this chicken. It’s just a few ingredients, but it’s super flavorful. It takes your average, everyday chicken breast to the next level of deliciousness.!
This dish is decidedly Italian inspired. The beauty of Italian food is that it is so simple. Sure there is the occasional complicated dish, but for the most part, Italian food just focuses on fresh ingredients that are prepared simply. That’s why when I’m in a hurry I usually veer toward something Italian-ish.
Yesterday was one of those days where I was just busy all day and by the time I looked up at the clock it was 5 pm! Ugh! Nothing planned for dinner. So I went to my fridge, surveyed the landscape, pulled out a few flavors that I know go together, and came up with this Prosciutto Wrapped Chicken with Mustard Maple Glaze. Serve it alongside some roasted broccoli and voila! You have a delicious, simple and nutritious meal that comes together in about 20 minutes. Enjoy!
- 4 servings
Ingredients for the chicken:
- 4 Chicken breasts. I used boneless and skinless because that’s what I had, but you can really use any cut of chicken you like. Just adjust cooking time accordingly.
- 2 slices of prosciutto de Parma per chicken breast
- 1 tbsp fresh rosemary, chopped
- 2 tbsp extra virgin coconut oil
- Sea Salt and pepper to taste
Ingredients for the Mustard Maple Glaze:
- Season your chicken on both sides with salt, pepper, and the fresh rosemary, but go light on the salt because the prosciutto is quite salty.
- Wrap each piece of chicken with two pieces of prosciutto and secure with a toothpick.
- Heat the coconut oil on a grill pan over medium high heat on the stove top. You can also do this in a frying pan and accomplish the same thing.
- Place the chicken breasts in the pan, and let cook for 4 minutes per side.
- In the mean time, heat a small saucepan over medium heat on the stove top, and add the maple syrup and mustard to the pan. Mix well to incorporate. Heat until the mixture has a steam. Do not boil because the maple syrup with burn!
- After the chicken has cooked four minutes on each side, baste one side of the chicken with the glaze and then flip it over to cook on that side. While the first side is cooking, baste the other side.
