Crispy Prosciutto & Sage Chicken with Sautéed Greens

Hey all. Here’s a simple yet delicious and easy weeknight recipe when you’re looking to cook a bit more *upscale.*  Don’t mind the giant chunks of garlic you see in the sauteed greens, I can’t find my chopping knife and am hopefully getting a knife set for Christmas (looking at you, Santa). I’ve never had my own knife set before. I literally had one cutting knife and it’s somewhere in Vermont, lost forever.

I’m also asking for the kitchen gadget that makes zucchini noodles; a Spiralizer!  How fun will that be?

And I promise to use it on here, and I also promise to put some crockpot recipes on here because I finally got one – for my birthday! These promises are all a part of my New Year’s resolution to blog more often. But it’s been a bit hard, okay. Cooking comes with a budget and a budget I do not have.


That’s all for now folks, I have a million pending posts but I wanted to get something up here.

 You’ll need:

  • 1 boneless chicken breast
  • 2 pieces prosciutto
  • Fresh sage leaves
  • Near East brand Toasted Pine nut Couscous
  • 3 cups spinach, kale and Swiss chard mix
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • Coconut oil spray
  • Salt, pepper

For the chicken: Preheat oven to 350. Wash the chicken breast in cold water and remove fat with scissors. Pat dry. Rub with salt, pepper and garlic powder. Top the chicken with sage leaves, and wrap with prosciutto. Tuck the ends in tightly.

Heat a frying pan and spray with coconut oil. Sear each side of the chicken breast for 3-4 minutes or until the ham is brown and crispy. Transfer chicken to oven and finish cooking.

For the greens: After the chicken is moved to the oven, add more coconut spray to the frying pan and add garlic. Let simmer till aromatic and add in the greens. Fold in the garlic and stir till wilted.

For the couscous: Follow package instructions.

  1. This sounds great too! On the knives: I grew up in the 70’s and acquired some of my mother’s knives. She ran a pizza place in Jaffrey in the 60’s and 70’s called Red’s Hot Pizza. So you see these knives are old but I think I did ok with them. About 8 years ago my 2 Twenty something sons gave me a Chef’s knife (Wustof) from Your Kitchen Store for Christmas. I used it that very day and cut off the tip of my finger! It bled a lot and my “boys” tried to Crazy Glue it back on which worked. My finger is fine but it made me realize I had never used a truly good quality sharp knife! Thereafter I received at least one knife every year from my sons for Christmas! I still have my Ma’s knives as well!
