Prosciutto Wrapped Chicken with Honey Mustard Sauce – This easy weeknight chicken feels fancy enough for a dinner party, but it’s made with just a handful of ingredients. Savory, salty, and a tiny bit sweet, it’s the perfect combination of flavors!
These prosciutto wrapped chicken tenders are EXACTLY the right kind of meal. They’re simple (hey, the basic ingredients are chicken + prosciutto + a little salt and pepper). They’re quick (done in under 30 minutes). AND they come with a delicious dipping sauce we can offer to have them try something new.
I use chicken tenders since they’re the perfect size for wrapping with a single slice of prosciutto. If you only have chicken breasts, you can pound them out to an even thickness (about 1- 1 1/2 inches) and slice them into strips, or you can leave them whole (again, pound out to an even thickness) and simply use two slices of prosciutto to cover them.
As for leftovers, they’re your new best friend. These reheat like a dream, and are also awesome cold, chopped up over a big salad.
Notes on the Recipe:
Consider Cast Iron – A cast iron pan is one of those things I didn’t really think I needed before I got one and tried it. GAME. CHANGER. Once you’ve seasoned it, it’s remarkably nonstick and gives a gorgeous browned crust to anything you want to cook, whether that’s chicken, steak, potatoes, etc. They’re not an expensive investment, but they can last you a lifetime!
Whole30 or Paleo? No problem. Look for a prosciutto with compliant ingredients (I always hunt for something without sugar or nitrates). If you’re on Whole30, skip the honey mustard in favor of guacamole or your favorite complaint sauce.
Not a honey mustard fan? Try this. This recipe is SUPER flexible as far as the sauce or topping goes. First off, you don’t even *need* one because the chicken is so flavorful and moist. If you want to skip the honey mustard sauce, I love guacamole, barbecue sauce, apricot jam thinned out to a glaze (just heat it till it’s melty), or even a bit of bright avocado ranch.
