Chicken, Zucchini and Prosciutto

"Searched with ingredients "chicken breast" and "zucchini"; this was top recipe. I, too, used bacon. It was delicious! Who knew bacon would complement squash so well (but then again, it is BACON). I added some fresh shredded basil at the end just before the lemon. Do not leave out the lemon, it really makes the dish."

Ingredients

Are you making this? 
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
2 tbsp olive oil
1/4 lb prosciutto; (about 8 slices)
3 small zucchini; sliced into half-moons

1 Lemon

Servings  

Preparation

Heat oven to 400°F. Season chicken with 1/4 tsp each of salt and pepper. Heat 1 tbsp oil in a large oven-proof skillet over medium/high heat. Cook the chicken for 2 minutes per side. Transfer to oven and roast for 8 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a second pan, over medium heat, heat the remaining oil. Cook the prosciutto until crisp, 1-2 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate. Add the zucchini, garlic and remaining salt and pepper and cook until tender, about 3 minutes.

Transfer the prosciutto, zucchini and garlic to the skillet with the chicken, squeeze the lemon over top and toss. Serve.

I too only had bacon but still enjoyed the flavours. Have put up a photo still. Served this with potato and carrots. An excellent quick and easy meal.

REALLY outstanding, even substituting bacon for prosciutto (please don't hate -- I just used what I had in the fridge) turned out flavor-rich and a fantastic new 'keeper' recipe discovery! Thank you, debk830! NEXT time I'll take photos (and try to have enough prosciutto on hand).
