We seem to eat a lot of chicken at our house. My husband isn't fond of brown meat so that leaves me finding yet a new way of making chicken breast exciting. Well this got a double thumbs up from both of us – so this low carb entree comes highly recommended!

How to Make Loaded Chicken Breasts with Spinach and Prosciutto

Place the chicken breasts onto a baking sheet lined with a silicone mat or foil. Place them in a preheated oven for 20 minutes.

While the chicken cooks, prepare the topping. Warm some olive oil in a large skillet (you could use some of the oil from the sun dried tomatoes if you like). Add chopped prosciutto, baby spinach, chopped sun-dried tomatoes, onion powder, paprika, and cream cheese. If you're not familiar with prosciutto it is a type of Italian ham – very flavorful. Cooked bacon or good quality ham could be used as an alternative. Cook over a low heat until a thick sauce has formed and season with salt and pepper.

Remove the chicken from the oven, and cut a cross in the center of each breast. Load them up with the topping and return them to the oven for another 10 minutes. Check that the chicken is thoroughly cooked before serving.
