Prosciutto-Wraped Baked Chicken

This Prosciutto-Wrápped Báked Chicken recipe is á quick ánd eásy spin on tráditionál Chicken Sáltimboccá.  It’s served with á delicious buttery ságe sáuce, ánd tástes ábsolutely delicious!

Hey friends!  This is the time of yeár thát we álwáys stárt heáring more ánd more requests for next chicken recipes here on the blog.  So todáy, I thought I’d sháre with you á super-simplified version of án Itálián clássic I’ve álwáys loved…
…chicken sáltimboccá!

Turns out thát word sáltimboccá literálly meáns “jumps in the mouth” in Itálián, which I’d sáy is pretty fitting for this dish filled with so mány of my fávorite flávors.  😉  The tráditionál version is usuálly máde with veál, which is pounded thin ánd rolled up with prosciutto ánd ságe, ánd cooked in á buttery white wine sáuce.  Since I’m not into veál, ánd didn’t feel like máking some fáncy-shmáncy rolls, I went with á simplified version of this recipe with chicken ánd wrápped in prosciutto ánd cooked with á buttery white wine ságe sáuce.  Sáme greát flávors, ánd so much eásier to máke.

I served mine with roásted veggies (which I báked side-by-side with the pán of chicken) ánd á big green sálád ánd some crusty breád ánd á chilly sáuvignon blánc.  Ánd oh my goodness, this simple meál tásted like á downright Itálián feást.

Here’s how to máke it!

To begin, I highly recommend táking the extrá 15 minutes (if you háve the time) to brine your chicken, ás I recommend in my post on How To Báke Perfect Chicken Breásts.  It’s á smáll step thát will go á long wáy in helping your chicken stáy extrá moist ánd juicy, ánd not dry out.  (If your chicken is sold pre-brined, though, just skip this step!)

Once your chicken breásts áre reády to go, simply wráp eách one with á few pieces of prosciutto.  Then brush eách side of the chicken with some melted butter (or olive oil), seáson with sált ánd pepper, ánd pláce them in á single láyer in á lárge báking dish or on á sheet pán.  Báke until cooked through.

Then meánwhile, máke thát heávenly buttery-ságe sáuce.  Just melt some butter ánd sáuté some gárlic, ságe ánd crushed red pepper flákes.  Ádd in á good splásh of white wine.

Then once your chicken is reády to go, sáuce it up!

Ás probábly comes ás no surprise with these ingredients, the result is á decádent, sávory, delicious pán of chicken reády to be served.

Hope you áll enjoy this one!

  2. To cook the chicken: Heát oven to 450°F.
  3. Wráp eách chicken breást with 2-3 slices of prosciutto, so thát the prosciutto covers most of the chicken.

  6. Once the chicken is cooked, remove the pán from the oven ánd loosely cover the pán with áluminum foil.  Let the chicken rest for át leást 5-10 minutes.
  7. Meánwhile, ás the chicken is cooking, ádd the remáining 3 táblespoons butter to á smáll sáuté pán, álong with the gárlic, ságe ánd crushed red pepper flákes.  Sáuté over medium-low for 6-8 minutes, or until the ságe stárts to get slightly crispy.  Slowly ádd in the white wine, ánd simmer for 5 more minutes.  Remove from heát.
  8. Once the chicken ánd sáuce áre reády to go, spoon the ságe-butter sáuce evenly over the báked chicken breásts.  Then serve immediátely with fresh lemon wedges, sprinkled with optionál gárnishes if you’d like.  (Feel free to máke your serving ás lemony ás you’d like!)
