This ultra-quick recipe is as easy as it gets. Chicken breasts are wrapped in a slice of savory prosciutto, and cooked until crispy. While they rest, you whip up a simple lemony pan sauce that brings it all together. Serve with Brussels sprouts and toasted garlic bread to complete the meal.

Instructions Checklist

  • Heat oil in a large ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken to the pan and cook until golden brown on 1 side, 3 to 4 minutes. Turn the chicken over and place the pan in the oven.

  • Bake until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the thickest portion of the chicken registers 165 degrees F, 4 to 6 minutes. Remove from the oven and transfer the chicken to a plate.

  • Return the skillet to medium heat; add broth and lemon juice; stir, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan. Simmer until reduced by about half, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in butter, parsley and crushed red pepper. Serve the sauce over the chicken.
