Prosciutto Chicken With Orange Sauce

"I make this wonderful full flavoured chicken recipe when we have our friends over. It's a nice Mediterranean tasting dish. Sometimes I grill the chicken and serve the sauce on the side as a variation. I serve it with roasted quartered potatoes and blanched collard greens, endive or dandelion leaves depending on season."
