Chicken, Zucchini, and Prosciutto

Real Simple JANUARY 2007

  • Yield: Makes 4 servings
  • Prep time: 15 Minutes

Ingredients

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 tablespoons (about 8 slices) prosciutto
  • 3 small zucchini, thinly sliced into half-moons
  • 1 clove garlic, thinly sliced
  • 1 lemon

Preparation

Heat oven to 400° F.

Rinse the chicken and pat it dry with paper towels. Season the chicken with 1/4 teaspoon each of the salt and pepper.

Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the chicken for 2 minutes per side. Transfer to oven and roast for 8 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a second skillet, over medium heat, heat the remaining oil. Cook the prosciutto until crisp, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate.

Add the zucchini, garlic, and the remaining salt and pepper and cook until tender, about 3 minutes. Transfer the prosciutto, zucchini, and garlic to the skillet with the chicken, squeeze the lemon over the top, and toss. Divide among plates.
