Prosciutto Stuffed Chicken


Since we've got home from the hospital I have manged to put a home-cooked meal on the table every single night. 
I have no idea how this has happen but thank goodness my husband is home for now and can help with Olivia while I'm cooking. No idea what we are going to do when he goes back to school and doesn't get home from football till about 7. Its okay I'll figure it out... I think ;-)
So, anyways while I was always sitting in bed and looking up fantastic recipes on pinterest while pregnant I found a ton of delicious looking recipes I knew I had to try! This is one of them.
This chicken is delicious and cheesy! It was super easy to make and something I knew my hubs would love. 
Now, I had never cooked with prosciutto, let alone ever tried it so I was a little scared but it looked fairly good and Rachael Ray cooks with it all the time so I knew it had to be good. 
It was amazing! I couldn't believe how much flavor the prosciutto gave the chicken and not to mention the cheesy factor helped a little too! 
So, go ahead and whip this recipe up. It took no time to prep and its something even those picky eaters will love. Oh and its figure friendly. :-)
