Prosciutto-Wrapped Chicken with Crispy Sage

Salty prosciutto wraps chicken in a giant hug in this super easy and fast weeknight (or any night) dinner.  It sounds SUPER fancy, but it's actually incredibly simple.  It proves you don't need a whole bunch of ingredients to make a yummy dinner.  I highly recommend using thin prosciutto (I like Costco's) to ensure it cooks through and gets nice and crispy.

  • Lay 1 chicken breast in the center, fold prosciutto over the chicken.
  • Repeat with the rest of the prosciutto and chicken.
  • Heat oil in 12‐inch nonstick skillet over medium‐high heat, until it easily glides over the skillet (but isn't smoking)
  • Using tongs, gently lay each wrapped chicken in the skillet and cook until lightly browned on both sides. This should take about 6-8 minutes.
  • The chicken won't be fully cooked with is ok, because you'll finish cooking it in the oven.

  • Transfer chicken to platter and gently cover with tinfoil to keep warm.
  • Mince 2 teaspoons sage and squeeze one of the lemon wedges to get 1 teaspoon of juice.
  • Melt butter over medium-high heat in the same skillet you used to cook the chicken. When the butter is browned and has nutty aroma (which should take about 1-3 minutes, depending on the heat).
  • Remove the skillet from the stove, and stir in sage and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute.
  • Stir in lemon juice, pinch salt, and 1/8 teaspoon pepper.
  • Drizzle sauce over chicken and serve immediately, with extra lemon wedges.
