Monday's Meal

You know we love ourselves some Italian food at my house...or at least what we consider to be Italian food. You know I have a fondness for inexpensive meals too. Well this meal isn't necessary the most inexpensive you'll whip up, but it is one of the yummiest. I mean honestly what could be better than chicken paired with ham and cheese, yummo!

Chicken Prosciutto

6 skinless, boneless chicken breast
6 thin slices of prosciutto ham
6 slices of provolone cheese
1 cup of grated Parmesan cheese
3 tbsp parsley
3 tbsp dried basil
3 tbsp oregano
3 tbsp rosemary
2 tbsp garlic powder
1/2 cup Marcela wine
1 cup of sour cream
3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

Flatten each chicken breast to about 1/4 " thick. Now for each chicken breast do the following: layer the Parmesan cheese, sprinkle salt,pepper, garlic, all the herbs, 1 slice of provolone and 1 slice of prosciutto ham. Roll up each chicken breast and insert a toothpick in several places to hold it together. In a large skillet add olive oil. Heat to medium and add the prepared chicken. Brown on all sides. Lower your heat, whisk the wine and sour cream together and pour over chicken. Cover the pan and simmer over low heat for about 15 minutes. Remove lid and continue to cook for an additional 20 minutes. Remove from pan, remove the toothpicks and serve with pasta or garlic mashed potatoes.
