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."
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.

Heatherferg 2y agoI 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.

CtrlAltDel 3y agoREALLY 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).
