Prosciutto Wrapped Chicken Breast with Cream Cheese

Chicken Breast Wrapped in Cream Cheese and Prosciutto is an amazingly easy and healthy way to bake the perfect juicy and delicious chicken breast

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

  1. Place the prosciutto slices on a piece of aluminum foil so the edges overlap slightly.
  2. Spread the cream cheese evenly onto the prosciutto. PRO TIP: Take the cream cheese out of the fridge 15 minutes before you start using it to let it warm up a little. That will make it much easier to work with.
  3. Place the fresh basil leaves on top so they cover the cream cheese.
  4. Gently, wrap the prosciutto, cream cheese, and basil leaves around the chicken breast and grind a little pepper on top (or a lot of pepper if you are like me and love pepper).
  5. Bake the Prosciutto Wrapped Chicken Breast with Cream Cheese in the oven for 25-30 minutes (depending on how large the chicken breast is) at 380 F (190 C).
  6. Let the chicken rest for a minute outside the over before cutting and serving. Enjoy!
