Good meals come in small packages, like chicken kept moist by cured ham and prepped in five minutes.

Instructions Checklist

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

  • 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.

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.
