Total Time

This is an easy dish that is quick to prepare ahead and looks really impressive. A great meal to serve to guests too, just increase the quantities as you need to. Goes well with roast garlic potatoes and grilled zucchini and red peppers.


  1. Preheat oven to 200 degree Celsius.
  2. Spread 2 teaspoons mustard over each chicken breast.
  3. Wrap 2 slices prosciutto around each breast and secure with a toothpick if necessary.
  4. Place chicken into a small baking dish and bake for 20 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.
  5. Serve with mixed vegetables.

Simple and excellent! Baked at 400 F for those of us with American ovens.

The first time I made this (forgot to review) I followed the recipe exactly and it was fantastic. The second time I had huge boneless chicken breasts so I cut a pocket in them and spread some dijon then I added some brie cheese and wrapped in the prosciutto. Excellent recipe with lots of variation possibilities. A wonderful recipe.

Really, really good. Amazing that it's so super easy! I had dinner in the oven in two minutes flat. The taste is great, and this is the most moist and tender B/S chix breast I've ever made. I guess the proscuitto keeps the juices from escaping. The mustard is a great addition. I only had a spicy brown on hand, but it worked well. I might take a tip from another reviewer next time and add a slice of swiss, but before wrapping with the proscuitto. I'm not sure how that would work but the proscuitto could still crisp up and have a little extra treat underneath. I used fairly thick breasts and cooked them at 400 for 30 minutes. I will definitely make this again!
