Jack’s Prosciutto Chicken


1 box of pasta, cooked (I prefer cavatappi, but rigatoni, farfalle, or something similar will work)

1 cup chicken breast, cut into bite-sized cubes

1 cup of flour, seasoned with salt and pepper (for dredging the chicken)

6-8 slices of prosciutto, diced

1 can (14.5oz) canned chicken broth

1 cup heavy cream or half and half (both work just fine)

1 cup grated Parmesan cheese

3 cloves of garlic, diced

2 Tbsp. oil (Whatever kind you normally cook with)

1 Tbsp. butter

Cook the pasta.

Place pan on medium heat. Once it’s heated, add 2 tbsp of oil and 1 tbsp butter. Once the butter is melted, add the diced garlic.

Dredge the chicken in the flour, four or five pieces at a time, and add to the pan. Repeat until all the chicken has been added. Cook until brown(approximately three minutes) and flip to brown the other side, another three minutes. 

Once the chicken is browned on both sides, add the prosciutto and stir, then cook until it gets crisp.

Add the chicken broth and heavy cream (or half and half) and increase heat to bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Let the mixture bubble or a couple minutes then lower the heat to medium. Cover and cook for five minutes, stirring occasionally.

Once the sauce starts to thicken, add the Parmesan cheese and stir. Cover and cook another two or three minutes then stir again. At this point, the sauce should be thick enough to coat the pasta. If it’s not, cover and let it cook for a few more minutes. 

Add in the cooked pasta and stir to coat. 

That’s it! Enjoy!
