Last week, I was trying to think of something different to do with my sad chicken breasts. I perused the fridge to see what I could come up with, and found some low fat prosciutto, spinach, and feta. I set out to bring a little excitement to my dinner.
It was a delicious success!
I shared the Instagram picture on my person Facebook page, afterwards, and had several recipe requests. So, I decided to make it again for dinner last night and share the recipe with everyone.
1 chicken breast
1 tablespoon cream cheese
2 tablespoons crumbled feta
1 tablespoon fresh chives, minced
1 clove garlic, minced
3-5 asparagus spears (1 small handful spinach, chopped)
3 strips prosciutto
1 wooden skewer cut in half (or 2 toothpicks)
To begin, mix together the cheeses, chives, garlic, and spinach (if using).
Then, butterfly the chicken breast and pound it thin.
Evenly spread cheese mixture on top the the chicken, covering as best you can. Top with asparagus spears.
Roll the chicken up tightly, wrap it with the prosciutto strips, and secure with skewers or toothpicks.
Place in a foil lined roasting pan and bake in a 400F/200C pre-heated oven for about 25 minutes, or until juices run clear.
Remove and let sit for a few minutes.
And last but not least, enjoy!
