It’s been a little while since the last recipe so hopefully I can make it up to you by sharing this extra good one. :) Unfortunately, I don’t have a specific source for this recipe and only know that it was shared at a local Nourishing Ways meeting last year. The recipe is pretty easy and really, really delicious.

It works great as an appetizer, party dish, and main dish for a regular dinner. The picture shown is from a bridal shower where my cousin and I made this dish and it was a really big hit.

The ingredients and instructions for the chicken part are as follows to yield 10-12 servings:

  • 8 – 4 oz boneless chicken breasts cut into 4 strips lengthwise
  • 4 oz thin sliced prosciutto (cut the slices in half lengthwise)
  • 2 oz olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic (minced)
  • salt and pepper

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Toss chicken strips with olive oil, garlic, salt, and pepper. Lay pieces on parchment lined baking sheets and bake for about 12-15 minutes or until golden. Remove from oven and once cooled enough, wrap each chicken piece with a strip of the prosciutto. Continue baking for 5 minutes and let cool slightly before serving.

For the avocado dip, mash two ripe avocados and stir in 2 Tbsp minced fresh onions, 1 Tsp mayo, 1 Tbsp Tabasco sauce (add more if you want it spicier!), and 1 diced scallion. Salt and pepper to taste and serve with chicken strips!
