Prosciutto & mozzarella chicken rolls

December 8, 2017

With the launch of the new weight watchers freestyle program and the list of the new zero point foods including chicken, I wanted to play around with some new recipes that are simple and tasty! I love chicken as much as the next person but I need to keep the creative ways to eat it rolling or I will get bored really quick.. These prosciutto & mozzarella rolls are delicious and so satisfying, they were a big hit in my house. They take very little time to prepare and just 3 freestyle smart points each..

    If I’m too lazy to roll these, do you think it would work to dip one side of the chix in the bread crumbs, lay it flat in the pan, and then just top it with the prosciutto, mozz and mix?

        Could I just use thin sliced breasts instead of having to try to split a full size breast? I can never get them sliced evenly

    Thank you so much for your inspiration and recipes! I made the procuitto chicken following your recipe almost exactly. My rolling skills didn’t work out, so instead I breaded the chicken and topped it with the remaining ingredients (I used roasted red peppers from the jar as I didn’t have fresh).
    It was AMAZING! My family loved it too!

      I use the reduced fat shredded mozzarella from Trader Joe’s, it’s 1 SP per 1oz (1/4 cup)

    I made this last weekend and it was DELICIOUS. I wonder if subbing the Prosciutto for deli ham might be a bit more cost effective (though not nearly as good). (Only because I want to make this all the time but know I’ll go broke buying prosciutto on the daily! ha! Anyway, thanks for this!

      Haha, yeah I hear you, I bet they would still taste good with ham 🙂 So glad you enjoyed them
