Prosciutto-Wrapped Chicken is a quick, yet flavor-packed recipe topped with an easy and yummy lemon caper pan sauce.
about 1 1/2 lbs., butterflied into 6 pieces
whole wheat flour
or other preferred flour
grated parmesan cheese
dash of pepper
extra virgin olive oil
juice from 1/2 lemon
about 2 tablespoons
Mix the flour, grated Parmesan and salt & pepper together in a shallow bowl. Wrap one slice of prosciutto around each chicken half, then dredge the chicken in the flour/cheese mixture.
Heat olive oil in a large-sized skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and cook on each side until golden brown. Remove the chicken to a plate lined with paper towel.
Add butter, chicken broth, lemon juice, lemon zest and capers to the skillet. Use a spatula to scrape up the browned bits and continue to cook the sauce until it has reduced by about half. Pour sauce over the chicken and enjoy with Alexia fries and roasted green beans.
For the complete meal in under 30 minutes, roast green beans and fries together at 425 degrees F for about 25 mins. For tastier green beans, I spray them with a little cooking spray and season with a dash of my favorite seasoning salt.
