Servings 6 people


  • 1 heavy large skillet


  • 6 cutlets chicken (3-ounce) pounded to evenly flatten
  • dashes salt and pepper to taste
  • 6 slices prosciutto sliced paper thin
  • 1 box frozen spinach (10-ounce) thawed
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese grated
  • 1 can chicken broth (14-ounce) low salt
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice fresh


  • Place the chicken cutlets on the work surface. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Lay 1 slice of prosciutto on each chicken cutlet.
  • Squeeze frozen spinach to remove excess water. Season the spinach with salt and pepper and toss with 1 tablespoon of oil to coat.
  • Place a thin layer of prepared spinach on the prosciutto slices. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese evenly. Beginning at the tapered end of the chicken cutlet, roll each cutlet as if it is a jelly roll and secure with a toothpick.
  • Heat the remaining olive oil in a heavy large skillet over high heat. Add the chicken and cook until golden brown.
  • Add the chicken broth and lemon juice to the skillet (with the chicken). Bring the liquid to a boil and then reduce the heat to medium. Cover and simmer for about 8 to 10 minutes.
  • Transfer the chicken to a platter. Continue to simmer the liquid until it is reduced to 2/3 cup (about 5 minutes). Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Remove the toothpicks from the chicken and drizzle the reduced liquid over the chicken.
