Prosciutto Wrapped Chicken

Prosciutto Wrapped Chicken is really simple in the Countertop Convection Oven.  It’s fast, delicious and the chicken stays lovely and moist with the crispy prosciutto to add flavour and crunch.


  • 2 Chicken Breasts
  • 8 slices of proscuitto
  • Salad or vegetables for serving.

Buy good quality chicken breasts and proscuitto.  This is such an easy dish and it’s worth the best ingredients you can afford.

  1. Lay 4 slices of prosciutto on a board.
  2. Place the chicken breast down on the slices and wrap the prosciutto around it.
  3. Repeat for the second breast.

Place the 2 chicken breasts on the lower tray with the wrapped slices under the chicken breast.  Cook at 180o C or 356o F for 20 minutes. Serve with your favourite salad or vegetables.

How quick was that?  I spent more time making sure the slices looked nice and even then I spent cooking it.  Next time I’ll just slap it in and wrap it up  😛

As you can see in my picture, I made a potato bake to serve with the Proscuitto Wrapped Chicken.

Potato Bake


  • 1 – 2 Potatoes
  • Water
  • Salt
  • 1 – 2 tablespoons Cream
  • Parmesan Cheese.
  1. Cut up one or two potatoes into slices or cubes, add a dash of water and some salt.
  2. Put them into the microwave with a plastic wrap to cook for 3 minutes on medium.
    This softens them up and allows you to cook it the same time as the chicken.  I used the same dish for both the microwave and oven.
  3. Add in some cream and parmesan cheese and mixed it around in the dish, making sure all the potatoes are coated in the mix.
  4. Top potato bake with a sprinkling of parmesan cheese and put it in the Round Countertop Convection Oven at the same time as the chicken.

This Prosciutto Wrapped Chicken was delicious and I enjoyed it very much.

Variations / Tips

Marinate the chicken breasts in garlic or honey mustard before wrapping in proscuitto for added flavour

Put a slice of sage underneath the slices

Throw in some of your favourite vegetables after a quick microwave to cook with the chicken for a delicious baked dinner

Potato bake tips

Add in garlic when cooking the potatoes in the microwave for a delicious flavour and mash up the softened garlic to mix with the cream and parmesan

Add onions and bacon to your potato bake for more flavour

Let me know what you think of this recipe and if you will be trying it in your Round Countertop Convection Oven too.

This is now one of my favourites.

    Chicken and Prosciutto (needed spell check to get that right!!) go absolutely brilliantly together – and the potato bake you made to go with it looks yum. Great cooking again Tanny 🙂

      Hi Jan, I think I spelt prosciutto wrong every time I wrote it in this post but no matter if I can’t spell it, it still tastes yum. I’m glad you like the potato bake. It’s so easy to make too and was yummy as well.

    That is such a great recipe – I love chicken.
    Friends of mine have a counter top convection oven and they swear by it – I can see why 😉

      Renee, glad you liked the recipe. I know if anything happened to my convection oven I would be out buying a new one that day. I can’t imagine cooking without it.

    This prosciutto wrapped chicken looks absolutely delicious and seems so easy to do. Did you actually do the potato bake in the counter top convection oven as well?

      Hi Jackie, it is delicious and I always enjoy this recipe when I cook it. I softened the potatoes in the microwave, in the dish in the picture, then added the cream and parmesan cheese and cooked it at the same time with the chicken. That’s a picture just before I took them out of the oven. Let me know if you give the recipes a try.

  • Belinda September 21, 2011, 9:07 pm
