Ingredients

4
thin slices prosciutto
4
boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 1 1/2 lb)
2
tablespoons butter, melted
1/2
teaspoon salt
1/4
teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1 3/4
cups Progresso™ chicken broth (from 32-oz carton)
1
cup uncooked orzo or rosamarina pasta
1
teaspoon grated lemon peel
1/4
cup shredded Parmesan cheese
1/2
cup Cascadian Farm™ frozen organic sweet peas (from 10-oz bag)

Directions

  • 1 Wrap 1 slice of prosciutto around each chicken breast. Coat chicken in butter; rub in salt and pepper flakes. Heat 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken; cook 2 to 4 minutes on each side or until browned. Remove chicken from skillet.
  • 2 Add broth; heat to boiling. Stir in orzo and lemon peel; return to boiling. Place chicken over pasta. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese over chicken. Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer 10 minutes.
  • 3 Stir frozen peas into orzo without disturbing chicken; cover and continue to cook over low heat 4 to 6 minutes or until most of liquid is absorbed, pasta is tender and juice of chicken is clear when center of thickest part is cut (at least 165°F).
Tips  

Opt for larger slices of prosciutto if possible to make wrapping the chicken easier.

Can’t take the heat? Swap ground black pepper for the crushed red pepper flakes.
