Prosciutto-Wrapped Chicken Breast with Roasted Green Beans

Prep Time:

Total Time:
25 mins

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


  • 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 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.
