    How to make wrapped Prosciutto chicken

    This low carb entrée idea couldn’t be easier.

    I like to start by cutting my chicken breasts into 4 ounce servings. Sometimes, chicken breasts will come very large, and I like to cut them in half to cook more quickly and be an appropriate portion. (get my portion control tips here!)

    Then, season with any seasoning you like. I used a Spicy Italian seasoning from Trader Joe’s.

    Wrap your prosciutto slices around the chicken breasts. I got my prosciutto at Costco. then, bake it at 400 degrees for about 20 minutes!

    That’s it!

    Tips for perfect prosciutto chicken

    • Pound chicken so it’s the same width and cooks easily
    • Use a meat thermometer to not dry out the chicken
    • Make it a balanced meal and serve with rice and veggies! With chicken and prosciutto as your entrée, round it out with a whole grain and veggies for the perfect balance of a macro friendly meal! I like rice and a frozen veggie blend.
