Cheesy Prosciutto Chicken

Cheesy Prosciutto Chicken

over Spaghetti with Tuscan-Spiced Marinara

Gourmet

This, folks, is not your average chicken dinner. Our chefs added tons of restaurant-level flair (with almost no effort!) by wrapping chicken breasts in salty, savory slices of prosciutto. Once seared, it crisps to perfection. The wrapped chicken is then sprinkled with mozzarella and broiled to get nice and melty. Finally, it’s served over twirly spaghetti that’s been cloaked in a Tuscan-spiced marinara. The best part? Everything comes together in under 40 minutes! Talk about a weeknight win.

Top seared chicken with mozzarella (it’s okay if some falls off). Transfer pan or sheet to top rack and roast until chicken is cooked through, 10- 15 minutes. Remove from oven and let rest a few minutes. Once water is boiling, add spaghetti to pot and cook, stirring occasionally, until al dente, 9-11 minutes. Drain.
