Prosciutto-Basil Chicken in a Tomato Sauce

  
A super speedy dinner I pulled together for a quick dinner party.  It used whatever I had in the kitchen and pantry and pulled together a tasty chicken dinner.  Try it !

Ingredients:

5 thinly sliced chicken breasts

5 slices of prosciutto

10 basil leaves

1/2Tbsp of minced garlic

3 stalks of green onions, chopped

2 shallots sliced

Bruschetta spread ( I bought this from Trader Joe’s)

1 Tbsp olive oil

1 Tbsp of cornmeal

1 tsp of crushed red pepper

1 cup of chicken stock

salt and pepper to taste

Method:

Season the chicken breasts with salt.

Spread the bruschetta mix on the chicken breast and lay two basil leaves on top of the spread.

  
Fold the chicken breast in half and secure with toothpicks.

Wrap each breast with prosciutto.

  
Heat 1 tsp of olive oil in a skillet and fry the chicken breasts till golden on each side.  Set aside.

   
 In the same pan add the chopped garlice,green onions and shallots and saute till pale.

Add 2 Tbsp of the bruschetta mix and cornmeal and saute for 2-3 mins

   
    Remove the toothpicks and return the  chicken to the pan and add the chicken stock

Simmer till the sauce thickens.

Serve with your choice of sides.  I did saffron rice and roasted asparagus.

Heat milk and chocolate in the microwave for 1 min, mix and let the mixture cool.
