Prosciutto Sage Chicken Skewers are delicious and one of those “never fail” recipes. That is my favorite kind of recipe….there are no worries regardless of who is coming to dinner! The prosciutto adds so much flavor and helps keep the chicken moist. These skewers make great leftovers so I always plan to make extra. The preparation is very simple which also makes it another one of my favorites!
If you are using wooden skewers, begin by putting them in water to soak. You will also need to preheat your grill to a medium high heat. Next, prepare the ingredients:
- 2 boneless half breasts of chicken
- 1 pkg prosciutto
- 2 large red onions
- 1 large red pepper
- 1 bunch fresh sage
- 1 lemon
- package of spring greens
- olive oil
Prepare the chicken breasts by cutting it into small cubes. Peel and slice the red onion and the red pepper into approximately 1″ sections. Cut the sage leaves from the stems. Because the prosciutto is so thin I have found it is easiest to simply tear it into strips as you assemble the skewers.
- Begin by wrapping a strip of prosciutto around a cube of chicken and put it on the skewer
- Next, add a sage leaf
- Followed by a slice of red onion and a slice of red pepper.
- Repeat the steps, ending with a cube of chicken (the skewers should have 4-5 pieces of chicken each)
Drizzle the skewers with olive oil and grill for approximately 15 minutes. Turn the skewers every 2 or 3 minutes until the chicken is firm and cooked through. Serve the skewers over a bed of fresh baby greens. Finish by sprinkling fresh lemon juice over the top.
Fresh corn on the cob tastes delicious with these skewers. With the approach of fall the fresh, locally grown corn will be disappearing so we had to have it just one last time!
