Roasted Chicken with Prosciutto, Provolone, & Spinach

Some of the best recipes come from quick tips or ideas from friends. There are endless possibilities on what to make for dinner, yet we have all felt stumped when trying to come up with the next menu. When people share something that they have made and loved, I try to take note and attempt it at home. Which is exactly what I tried to do with this recipe and it was delicious. You can make this chicken a million different ways and utilize what you might already have in your fridge. The cheese options are endless, any vegetable would most likely work, and instead of prosciutto, try salami or pepperoni. Yet another way to change up your chicken routine and it's delicious.

Roasted Chicken with Prosciutto, Provolone, & Spinach
Forks & Amusement 2011
serves 4

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, pounded to about 1/4 inch thick
8 slices provolone cheese
4 slices prosciutto, thin
1 cup fresh spinach leaves
8 hot cherry peppers, deseeded and sliced (optional if you like heat)
1 cup panko bread crumbs (in Asian food section, or you can use Italian style)
2 eggs, lightly beaten
cooking spray, like Pam

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Place a cooling rack inside a large baking sheet.

Lay out chicken breasts and layer the toppings in this order on each breast: 2 slices provolone, 1 slice prosciutto, 1/4 of the spinach leaves, 1/4 of the peppers (if using).

Place the bread crumbs and the egg in separate flat dishes. Roll each breast up tightly, keeping ingredients inside. Roll in the egg to coat, then roll in the bread crumbs to coat. Place seam side down on the cooling rack in the baking sheet. Repeat with each breast.

Spray each with cooking spray all over and bake for 30-45 minutes (depending on size of breast) until cooked through. Place under the broiler for last 5 minutes to brown. Serve warm.
