Pan-Roasted Chicken with Prosciutto, Rosemary and Lemon

First of all, thank you to Garvi'ela Stiedemann and Chris for following my blog!

Here we are...Sunday already. Isn't the weekend always too short? I am working on a few different projects - writing, experimenting with some new recipes, crocheting when I can stand the yarn to sit on my lap.....it's sooooo hot here.

Anyway.....This meal I am about to share with you was prepared (and enjoyed) two weeks ago. Going through my photos I realized I never posted it. My bad..... but it's another simple meal that you can have on your table in about hour, without tending to it all that time.



Ingredients needed are.........

Extra Virgin olive oil
4 ounces thinly sliced prosciutto, cut into ribbons
2 spring fresh rosemary
1 cut up chicken (I used quarters)
3/4 cup chicken stock
1/2 lemon, juiced
salt and pepper

Simple, especially if you are in a hurry to get something on the table. I don't always have prosciutto in the fridge but this time, I did.



Ready to get started?

Preheat oven to 350 F

In an ovenproof pan that is large enough to hold all the chicken, drizzle enough olive oil, say 2 tablespoons and then a bit more.

Add prosciutto and rosemary and saute, stirring until prosciutto is crisp and brown. This takes about 4 minutes.

Push it to one side of the pan. Season your chicken pieces with salt and pepper and add to the pan, skin side down. Cook for about 5 minutes or until is starts browning. Turn it over...another 3 minutes.



Turn the chicken again, stick the pan in the oven and roast until the chicken is tender and cooked through, about 30 more minutes.

Take the pan out of the oven. Remove the chicken and prosciutto from of the pan and arrange on a platter to keep warm while you prepare the pan sauce.

Pour out all but about 1 tablespoon of the rendered chicken fat and return the pan to the stove top. Stir in the stock and lemon juice.



Cook over medium heat, scraping up the flavors stuck to the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon, until reduced to a syrup, 3 to 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Drizzle the pan sauce over the chicken and serve immediately



I served with lemon steamed green beans and roasted potatoes.......



And bread of course.



We are back from Doug's last appointment in Port Richey and I have lots of photos to share. Stay Tuned...........

Oh this looks like quite a treat! I love the combination of chicken, rosemary, smoky prosciutto with a splash of lemon juice. Looks great!

Looks like another gorgeous meal, Tina! I love prosciutto too, but rarely have any in the refrigerator. It's hard to find here in KY. I can only imagine how hot and humid it is already in FL. Hop on the bike and get some wind in your hair ;-)

Cathy - I have the post of Doug's ink ready for Thursday. Just gathering photos. Glad you got out on your bike -yippee!

Fresh and Local Best - Thank you - it was delcious :-)

Kim - I hear ya! It's hot. No proscuitto in KY? That's bad news. But I don't think I could ship you any before it went bad.

Gledwood - Thank you for visiting! It was a tasty meal and I'm glad you like squirrel. Our place is overrun with them since the demise of my cat.

Ack - I see my comment didn't get through. I have been having issues commenting on Blogger blogs for the last couple of days...

All I remember saying originally was A) this looks incredible, B) anything with prosciutto is incredible and C) I love your new template and where did you find it, which leads me to D) sorry for not visiting more often!

Looking forward to your email!

WC - Oh tell me about it, blogger has been giving me fits! I'll write a long assed comment and it doesn't go through. So frustrating. We'll talk tomorrow...it's my bedtime :-)
