The prosciutto is key, too—just a ½-ounce strip of thinly sliced cured ham wrapped around a nice boneless chicken thigh makes all the difference in boosting flavor and savoriness.</p></div> http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/food_blog/restaurant_worthy_prosciutto_wrapped_chicken_in_35_minutes#comments Food Blog Budget meals Dinner Entertaining Family meals Quick meals Wendy Ruopp Multimedia & Tools - Blogs Fri, 06 Dec 2013 21:56:12 +0000 Stefan_20 279920 at http://www.eatingwell.com Ramen Grows Up: Easy, Healthy Chicken Ramen Soup at Home http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/food_blog/ramen_grows_up_easy_healthy_chicken_ramen_soup_at_home <div><a href="http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/food_blog/ramen_grows_up_easy_healthy_chicken_ramen_soup_at_home" target="_blank"><img src="http://bed56888308e93972c04-0dfc23b7b97881dee012a129d9518bae.r34.cf1.rackcdn.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/148_148/MP8557_Ardito_0.JPG" alt="Ramen Grows Up: Easy, Healthy Chicken Ramen Soup at Home Blog Post" title="Ramen Grows Up: Easy, Healthy Chicken Ramen Soup at Home Blog Post" border="0" width="148" height="148"/></a></div> <div><p>Remember when your furniture was mostly plastic crates in different configurations and you ate ramen at least once a day?
