Prosciutto Wrapped Pesto Chicken w/ Roasted Garlic Potatoes

Want a reallllly good meal that’s realllly simple? Look no further. Don’t worry just grabbed the chicken recipe from super model Chrissy Teigen on her Instgram. Girl is pretty hilarious. It looked and sounded divine and really simply so I went for it! Added some easy roasted garlic potatoes on the side.

 

INGREDIENTS:

Potatoes:

  • 1.5 tbsp minced garlic
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • salt and pepper (to taste)
  • 4 Red Potatoes (halved and quartered)

Homemade Pesto:

  • 2 cups Basil
  • 2/3 cup olive oil
  • 1.5 tbsp minced garlic
  • 1/4 cup pine nuts
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • salt and pepper (to taste)

Prosciutto Chicken

  • 3-4 chicken breasts
  • 6-8 strips of prosciutto
  • salt and pepper (to taste)

Step One:

Lets start with potatoes. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Get them chopped up, pour olive oil over and shake some salt and pepper on top. Mix in the minced garlic and stir all around. Spread them all around on a baking sheet and pop them into the oven for about 25-30 minutes. DONE. Put them in a bowl or the microwave to keep warm. Keep your oven on at 400.

Step Two:

Get going on the pesto. Place your basil, olive oil, garlic, pine nutes and salt and pepper into a blender or food processor (I used my trusty NutriBullet which I’m currently OBSESSED with. Mix it all together and THEN gently stir in your grated parmesan cheese. Isn’t it bright and pretty?

Step Three:

Now time for the chicken. Get your breasts (the poultry ones 🙂 )and dip them into your pesto. Get it all rubbed on evenly. I had way more than enough. I probably could’ve done a little less. Wrap your prosciutto around your chicken breasts. It’s so thin so be careful but it doesn’t have to be perfect. Don’t be anal. Pop those suckers in the oven, for about 20-25 minutes. Cut into one if you need to, to make sure no pinkness when done.

 

Wham bam they’re done. Plate them with your potatoes, maybe some fresh greens and dinner….is…served.
