This Prosciutto Wrapped Stuffed Chicken is easy to make, and very tasty. This makes for a nice date meal!
So I started Crossfit up again this week. It’s crazy to see how much strength that I’ve lost. Even though I have been doing some hypertrophy work, not being able to really work my core and explosive movements, or do any cardio has really affected me. I know I will get it back, but this is why I dislike taking time off. I don’t like to lose any muscle or strength that I’ve worked so hard to obtain.
The WODs felt like death, but it felt good to feel that way again! That may sound crazy, but I love the feeling of exhaustion and defeat and sweat after a good crossfit WOD. It always makes me feel like a badass. Going to the gym and doing sets was okay, but it is really not my thing. I get very bored and keep looking at the clock and just want to leave. And I could do without all the mirrors, I don’t really want to look at myself while I’m working out. I like crossfit because it’s fast, intense, and you’re usually doing it with others who are cheering you on. I have nothing against other types of workouts at all, but I personally don’t enjoy it.
I was feeling fancy the other night, so I decided to make this. Nothing says a fancy meal more than stuffed chicken, right? Especially if it involves prosciutto..that just sounds like something that should be served in a fancy restaurant, doesn’t it?
Well, whether or not this meal was fancy, it tasted great! It was also very easy to make with minimal ingredients, and not much cooking time. There’s not much to it, you basically just have to butterfly your chicken breasts and fill it with the stuffing
Then close it up and wrap them in prosciutto..
Then bake it!
Then slice into it and eat it!
It’s pretty much that simple, and doesn’t take too long. No slaving in the kitchen for an hour. And, if you’re like me and use foil, there won’t be too much clean-up either. That’s a win-win for me!
