Ingredients

  • 3-4 chicken breasts or chicken thighs, boneless, skinless, cut into strips -
  • 2-3 prosciutto sliced - per strip
  • 1/4 cup butter melted - or 1/2 stick
  • 1 tblsp garlic minced - (more or less to taste)
  • 2-3 tsp olive oil
  • salt - sprinkles to taste
  • pepper - sprinkles to taste
  • cooking spray

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.

  2. Prepare a rimmed baking sheet with tinfoil and a rack coated in cooking spray. Set aside.

  3. Pour a few tablespoons of oil into a small bowl with a brush and set aside.

  4. Cut each of your chicken breasts into 3 or 4 strips lengthwise. The number of strips you have will vary depending on the size of your chicken breasts. You will have to adjust your cooking time accordingly. Set aside.

  5. Next you will have to melt the garlic butter. If you have a microwave, place the butter and garlic or your garlic butter stick into a bowl and heat in the microwave until melted. If no microwave, place butter in a small saucepan and melt over medium heat.

  6. Pour butter in to a small bowl and set aside.

  7. On your work surface place 2 or 3 prosciutto slices, lying flat beside each other, slightly overlapping.

  8. Dip chicken strips into the melted garlic butter and then place at the end of the prosciutto slices. This step is messy but these are so worth it!

  9. Next you roll the prosciutto slices around each chicken strip, as tightly as possible, and place on your prepared sheet.

  10. Paint olive oil all over the outside of each prosciutto covered chicken strip and sprinkle some pepper, if desired.

  11. If any prosciutto ends are sticking out be sure to tuck them underneath the chicken strip.

  12. Place in the oven and bake for between 20 and 25 minutes.

  13. They are ready when chicken juices run clear and the prosciutto is crisp. Enjoy!
