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!

I'm married and am very blessed to be the mother of a gorgeous little 2 year old named Mac. I live in good ol' North Dakota! I love to do many things. Laugh, love, write and cook. Mostly, I like to enjoy life to the fullest. That's probably why I love cooking so much. There is no right or wrong way of doing it. My day job keeps me very busy but its also extremely rewarding. I work for a company called Pride Inc. We serve individuals with developmental disabilities. So most of the people on my caseload are like my family. For me, I learned from my grandma that cooking brought people together. I associated it with happiness, love and togetherness and who doesn't want those things in life! So I've always tried to continue that in my own life with my own family. Nothing brings people together like a good meal. And a few good laughs!
