Chicken and a Movie

Dear Sally,

This is a late post for which I am very sorry but better late than never! By the way I am SOOOO excited about our sleepover :)

Ok so I had Greg over for dinner and a movie and I had ZERO time to prep and two thawed chicken breasts that needed to be used. I went to the only place to go in this situation . . . . Jamie Oliver!

I made Parmesan Chicken Breasts with Crispy Posh Ham, roasted rosemary garlic potatoes and lemon balsamic green beans.

The food and company were nice but I have to admit that the entire time I was thinking WHERE IS MY STINKING WINE OPENER!!!!! Is this bad?


Parmesan Chicken Breats with Crispy Posh Ham, 
Roasted Garlic Potatoes and Lemon Balsamic Green Beans

2 fresh sprigs of thyme
2 skinless chicken breasts

freshly ground pepper
1 lemon
1 1/4 ounces grated parmesen
6 slices prosciutto
olive oil

1. To prepare your chicken grate the parmesan and pull the leaves off the thyme sprigs. Carefully score the underside of the chicken breast in a criss-cross fashion with a s
mall knife. Season with salt and pepper (DO NOT add any salt because the prosciutto adds anough). Lay the chicken breasts next to each other and season with thyme, lemon zest and parmesan cheese. Lay 3 prosciutto slices on each chicken breast, overlapping them slightly. Drizzle with a little olive oil and sprinkle with the remaining thyme leaves. Cover with plastic wrap and bang with a fry pan till they are about 1/2 inch thick.

2. Cook the chicken over medium heat for three minutes on each side) a little longer on the prosciutto side so it is crispy) and serve.
