Prosciutto-Wrapped Chicken Breast with Roasted Green Beans

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

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.

    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.
