Pollo Alla Spiedini Prosciutto

Wow! Where did the time go? I realized today how long it has been since I last posted on the blog and I feel ashamed! I truly apologize for being delinquent!

Between traveling all over the state visiting farms and farmers’ markets, plus working the Missouri State Fair for 11 days, I have not really had time to do anything. But, things are changing.

If you want to see how the first annual Missouri State Fair Farmers’ Market went this year – check out my other blog – A Look at Missouri Farmers’ Markets.

Supporting the local theme that’s been stirring around the media and my own home lately, I have a great recipe from a Missouri food company – Zia’s. Hope you enjoy this as much as my family does.

Pollo Alla Spiedini Prosciutto
8 oz chicken tenders
1/4 cup sliced mushrooms
1/3 cup Zia’s Sweet Italian Dressing
1/4 cup diced prosciutto ham
1/4 cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs
1/4 cup shredded provel cheese
3/4 cup Zia’s White Wine, Lemon, & Butter Sauce

Combine chicken and salad dressing in a re-sealable plastic bag and marinate for 1 ½ hours. Discard marinade. Prepare medium fire in grill. Thread chicken onto skewers and dust with bread crumbs. Grill over medium heat until juices run clear when pierced. Bring Zia’s White Wine, Lemon & Butter Sauce to a simmer over low heat. Add mushrooms and prosciutto. Cook until mushrooms are tender (about 5 minutes). Remove chicken from skewers to serving plate, top with provel cheese and cover with sauce. Garnish with additional provel cheese.

(Note: If not using a grill, preheat oven to 350 degrees. Do not use skewers, instead arrange breaded chicken in oven safe dish and bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until chicken is cooked through).
