Ingredients

  • 1 chicken breast
  • 1.4 oz. finely sliced prosciutto (Parma ham)
  • 1.3 oz. cream cheese (low-fat)
  • 5-10 fresh basil leaves (depending on size)
  • Pepper

Instructions

  • Place the prosciutto slices on a piece of aluminum foil so the edges overlap slightly.
  • Spread the cream cheese evenly onto the prosciutto.
  • PRO TIP: Let the cream cheese sit at room temperature for 15 minutes to make it easier to work with.
  • Place the fresh basil leaves on top so they cover the cream cheese. 
  • Gently, wrap the prosciutto, cream cheese, and basil leaves around the chicken breast and grind a little pepper on top.
  • Bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes (depending on how large the chicken breast is) at 380 F (190 C).
  • When the chicken is done, take it out of the oven and let it rest for about 5 minutes before cutting and serving. Enjoy!

Notes

This recipe is for 1 chicken breast, which is 1 serving.
You can substitute the basil for thyme, sage, or any herb with a fairly strong flavor.
Leftovers can be stored in the refrigerator in an airtight container for 3-4 days.
This dish can also be frozen for up to 3 months. Once you’re ready to eat, transfer to the refrigerator overnight to thaw. The next day, simply heat it up in the oven, microwave, or stove.
