Prosciutto Wrapped Chicken or Elegant Chicken Fingers

August 21, 2011

Prosciutto Wrapped Chicken is the simplest, fanciest recipe I am pleased to share with you!  Literally two ingredients, you don’t even need oil for cooking.  The prosciutto adds so much flavour, your dinner mates will think you put much more effort into the meal.  Just sit back, stay quiet and enjoy the compliments!

You can use the same method to create fun, sophisticated chicken fingers.  I often make these chicken fingers for picnics because they are just as delicious cold!


Chicken: boneless skinless chicken breasts aren’t necessary, but very nice.

Prosciutto: 1 slice per chicken breast (these slices are usually very long)

Note: I bought club pack sizes for each of these items so your meal should cost substantially less than the price tags on my photo indicate.  You only need one long slice of prosciutto per piece of chicken, so if you go to the deli counter of your local grocery store, you can ask for just two or four thin slices of prosciutto which will cost you less than $1.

Wrap your chicken in a slice of prosciutto, or alternatively, for elegant fingers slice your chicken into 3 or 4 long pieces and then wrap in prosciutto.

Fry on medium or medium low for about 7 minutes per side until brown and cooked through (a bit longer for whole chicken pieces, a bit less for the chicken fingers).

After the flip.

Enjoy immediately or pack up some fingers for a nice picnic – they are easy to eat and just as delicious cold!

Easy enough for any day, fancy enough for special days. Jump up.
