Recipe: Prosciutto Chicken

I’ve had some requests for easy, weeknight Phase 1 dinner ideas…this one fits the bill!

I made it a few nights ago and thought it was delicious. My husband and I ate 2 of the chicken breasts with a big salad and some quinoa, so we had 2 more for lunch.  That’s one of my biggest tips for eating healthy…double a dinner recipe so you have something easy to reheat at lunch time.

Prosciutto Chicken

4 chicken breasts
4 pieces of prosciutto
8 slices of lemon, thinly sliced
1/4 cup butter, at room temperature
1 teaspoon garlic powder
salt and pepper

Combine butter and garlic powder and set aside.  Place one chicken breast in between two pieces of plastic wrap and pound with a rolling pin to 1/2″ thick. Repeat with the other pieces of chicken breast and place them in a greased baking dish.  Place a piece of prosciutto and two slices of lemon on each piece. Dot each chicken breast with 1/4 of the butter and season with pepper.  Bake at 350° for about 30 minutes.

Makes 4 servings.

Don’t know why I didn’t take a picture when it came out of the oven…probably because it smelled soooo good. It’s garlic-lemon-salty goodness. And so easy! It took me all of 5 minutes to take the ingredients out of the frig, “assemble” and put this in the oven. This is definitely an easy weeknight meal 🙂
