This recipe goes with Simple Broccoli Rabe
4 6-ounce boneless, skinless chicken breasts
Black pepper
4 slices prosciutto
2 tablespoons fresh oregano, chopped (or 1 1/2 teaspoons dried)
1 tablespoon olive oil
8 cloves garlic, unpeeled
1/2 cup dry white wine (optional)


Season the chicken with 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Lay the prosciutto on a cutting board or plate and sprinkle with the oregano. Lay each chicken breast on a slice of prosciutto and wrap the prosciutto around the chicken.

Heat the oil and garlic in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the chicken and cook until the prosciutto is crisp and the chicken is cooked through, 6 to 7 minutes per side.

Transfer the chicken and garlic to plates. If using the wine, add it to the skillet and simmer until reduced by half, 3 to 4 minutes. Spoon over the chicken.
