This was inspired by one of Wholesome Husband’s favorite dishes – chicken saltimbocca. I realized that I had a ton of fresh basil instead of sage, which is used in the saltimbocca recipe. Peaking in my fridge, I found this great feta cheese that I bought at Costco. So I figured I would go with that and this recipe turned out amazing!
~16 fresh basil leaves (0.4-0.5 oz)
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (1 lb total weight)
3 ounces prosciutto, thinly sliced
3 ounces fresh feta cheese, crumbled
1/4 c seasoned bread crumbs
1 lemon, quartered
1. Preheat the oven to 375. Line a baking pan with tin foil.
2. Place the four chicken breasts in the baking pan and press about four basil leaves into the top of each breast. Lay the slices of prosciutto over the top of the basil.
3. Crumble the feta cheese on the chicken and top with bread crumbs.
4. Bake about 15 minutes or until chicken is cooked through. Garnish with lemon wedges to squeeze over the top. Serves 4.
Delicious and simple! Enjoy!
