Chicken Saltimbocca

I am on a kick! Using coconut oil, prosciutto and rosemary….and it just so happens that the flavors go lovely together. Here is the first of them.

My favorite part of this recipe is flattening the chicken. It never fails, every time I am done with the flattening part, I seem to have less stress then when I started! So if your looking for something fun and fresh or looking for a way to easily leave a lasting impression on people. This may do the trick….or treat :)

Happy Halloween!
