lvonna at Cream Puffs In Venice theme for August is Italian Terrace, for the cookbook "Recipe's From An Italian Terrace" by Valentina Harris'. I can not think of a better theme for August. Actually I can not think of a better theme for any month, but it is a good choice for August. So in keeping in the spirit I will share my recipe for prosciutto wrapped chicken. There are lots of versions out there of this dish. Some are breaded, some add cheese, some pound the chicken. But I like this recipe because it is quick and simple. Add some fresh sliced tomatoes, simple salad, bread, heaven !!
1/8 cup olive oil
4 large basil leaf or 8 whole fresh sage leaves
8 very thinly slices of prosciutto
Heat olive oil till hot and add chicken basil/prosciutto side down. Turn heat down to med and cover pan and cook 10 minutes. Then flip chicken over, cover and cook 5 more minutes or till chicken it done.
