Prosciutto-Wrapped Chicken Breast with Roasted Green Beans

Source: Everyday Food, April 2008

Ingredients

  • 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

Directions

  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 Notes

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.
