This recipe makes great use of only one pan by layering the ingredients by cooking time. Great for summer or winter time dinners, this recipe is fully prepared in under an hour. The final presentation is so lovely you can bring the whole pan to the table for serving. Place the salty, rich prosciutto on top of the chicken to insulate the breasts with an oilier protein and help to keep them moist during roasting. Tomatoes on the vine make a pretty presentation for this dish, but regular cherry or grape tomatoes work just as well. Other herbs such as sage or thyme can be used in place of rosemary.
