Prosciutto and Spinach Stuffed Chicken
I adapted this recipe from Giada De Laurentiis - one of my favorite Food Network Stars. She is so sweet, lovely and beautiful... sometimes I secretly I hate her - but her recipes are good and pretty fool proof. AND IT HAS PROSCIUTTO!
Ingredients (serves 2):
2 chicken breasts
2 slices of prosciutto
1/2 cup frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
1/4 cup shredded mozzarella
3/4 cup of chicken stock
Teaspoon dried sage
Pound chicken breasts until they are about 1/2 inch thick. Lay a slice of prosciutto on top of each breast. Sprinkle mozzarella on top. Season spinach with a little butter and plop on top of the cheese. Roll the chicken breasts up and secure with toothpicks. Heat a skillet with oil and add the chicken. Cook for two minutes on each side to get a nice sear. Add the chicken broth, lemon juice and sage, cover the skillet and let the chicken simmer for about 10 minutes on low/med heat. Remove chicken to plates, remove the toothpicks, pour extra sauce over the chicken.
