Yield
4 servings (serving size: 3 ounces chicken, about 1/2 cup sauce, 1 tablespoon prosciutto, and 1 1/2 teaspoons parsley)

Smoked paprika is a traditional ingredient in Spanish cuisine, and adds a nice punch of flavor in this spicy dish prepared in the style of Spain's northwestern Basque region . Serve the chicken with saffron rice to soak up the tasty sauce.

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine paprika and pepper; sprinkle evenly over chicken. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken to pan; cook 4 minutes. Add garlic to pan; cook 30 seconds. Turn chicken over. Add olives and tomatoes to pan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 6 minutes.

Step 2

Remove chicken from pan. Increase heat to medium-high; cook 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Sprinkle with prosciutto and parsley.

We've been making this since 2008 and we still LOVE it. It's easy and super tasty. Even our kids eat the chicken (and they also gobble up the left over prosciutto from the package, I must admit.) Rice or orzo work well for soaking up the sauce.

I make this fairly often and it's a huge favorite! Easy & fast, but I would love to see a recipe that uses fresh ingredients.

This is now a favorite of mine and my husband. Easy and fast! Great blend of tastes! The second time I used cilantro instead of parsley and it was awesome. I love to cook and try new recipes and this is one that will keep my going back to my Cooking Light for more!

Delicious! Adults and children loved it. Definitely serve over saffron rice like suggested.. lots of juice. Perfect amount for 2 adults and 2 teenagers.

This recipe was AWESOME! I made it exactly as written (using 2 cans of regular Rotel). It was plenty spicy - we love heat and it had a zip! The prosciutto and olives were awesome in it. Will make this again for sure!
