Prosciutto-Wrapped Chicken Breast with Roasted Green Beans

Source: Everyday Food, April 2008


  • 4 ounces green beans, stem ends removed
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 1 boneless, skinless chicken breast half
  • 3 thin slices prosciutto
  • Lemon wedge, for serving


  1. Heat broiler of toaster oven (or oven). On toaster-oven pan (or a small rimmed baking sheet), toss green beans with 1 teaspoon oil. Season with salt and pepper, and push to one side of pan.

  2. Season chicken with salt and pepper; wrap with prosciutto. Place chicken, seam side down, on other side of pan; rub with remaining teaspoon oil.

  3. Broil until chicken is opaque throughout, 15 to 20 minutes. Serve chicken and green beans with a lemon wedge.

Cook's Note

Wrapping chicken with thin-sliced prosciutto keeps it juicy without adding much fat; a squeeze of lemon juice instead of a heavy sauce is another bright twist.

    Holy Moly, this was fanTAStic! I also cut a pouch in the side of each breast and added basil and smoked gouda. I am not usually a fan of prosciutto, and I was going to sub bacon, but I'm so glad I didn't....the prosciutto browns so nicely and really had great flavor. I'm going to start substituting it for bacon from now on. Thank you for another GREAT recipe!

    It won't be a five ingredient recipe anymore, but cut a slit in the chicken breast and put a piece of smoked gouda and 2 basil leaves in the slit before wrapping in prosciutto. Yum!

    I love prosciutto, and I love this recipe. Wrapping the chicken in prosciutto makes it come out super moist and flavorful. Also, in other recipes I've seen, you add a basil leaf tucked under the prosciutto and that is a nice little addition as well. I like this recipe because it makes chicken a little more exciting without being too complicated.

    What temprature should I broil it at? Looks good!

    I did the same thing; skipping the beans. Went over extremely well. We dipped in a bit of sweet and sour sauce.

    I skip the green beans and just make the chicken. This is a simple yet delicious recipe! The chicken stays really moist.

    This recipe doesn't mention at what temperature to set the broiler or where in the oven the rack should be set. I ended up with crispy, blackened green beans.
