  • Chicken breast– this uses boneless skinless chicken breast. Try to get thikcer ones so their is enough to stuff.
  • Veggies – asparagus, bell peppers and tomatoes are the low carb veggies I used in this. Feel free to use other low carb veggies like cauliflower instead.
  • Flavorings – a combination of oregano and lime juice gives this dish it flavor. feel free to use other spices / herbs and blends to taste like Italian seasoning, Greek seasoning etc.
  • Cheese – Use the best melty mozzarella. you can find.

Tips for Making Prosciutto Wrapped Chicken

  • Double the recipe if you’re looking to feed a crowd.
  • Always cook chicken to an internal temperature of 74C (165F). Add extra cook time if your chicken breasts are thicker.
  • You can make the chicken breasts in your Instant Pot and finish up in the oven. You can take frozen chicken breasts and cook them in no time with your Instant Pot. Check out my Instant Pot Chicken Breast recipe if you’re cooking from frozen. Once the chicken breasts are cooled, slice into and follow the recipe below. Place in oven until mozzarella cheese is melted.
  • There is some prep work involved with slicing the chicken and cutting the vegetables. If you’re feeding a crowd or have some time before the dinner rush, you can slice ahead of time and place in the fridge for use later that day.
  • Proscuitto wrapped chicken and vegetables arranged on a baking sheet and just out of the oven

Delicious Variations

You can easily customise this Prosciutto Wrapped Chicken to suit your liking.

  • Easily swap out the asparagus and tomatoes out for long stem broccoli and zucchini.
  • You can also add in delicious pesto to your baked wrapped chicken breasts for a little more Italian flavours.
  • I made a mozzarella stuffed chicken breast, but other soft cheeses like cream cheese would also work really well too.

Prep Ahead And Storage

  • Prep ahead – prep everything ahead of time and keep in the fridge for up to 24 hours before hand.
  • Store – refrigerate the cooled cooked dinner in an air tight container for up to 3 days.


How Long to Cook Stuffed Chicken Breasts

It depends! My cheese stuffed chicken breasts were perfect out of the oven after 25 mins at 180C (400F).

If you don’t already have one, it’s time to invest in a meat thermometer. It takes the guesswork out of cooking your meat. No one likes an overdone steak and no one can even touch the underdone chicken.

How To Keep The Chicken Juicy

Feel free to brine the chicken before hand to keep it extra juicy.

    Love sheet pan dinners and love Parma ham so this is one dinner I’m going to trying in the near future. (also love the snitching while fixing too 🙂 ) This looks like a gourmet meal and I love that it’s all done in such a short amount of time. Great recipe!

    I’m pinning this! I haven’t made my meal plan yet, but I know I have some chicken breasts in the freezer. Will probably end up making it next week. I’ll let you know how it turns out.
