A quick, simple, and delicious chicken dish with an elegant presentation. Prosciutto-wrapped chicken thighs are baked with garlic and mushrooms. The drippings are simmered with white wine and sour cream to create a scrumptious sauce.
INGREDIENTS (for 6 servings):
- 2 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
- 6 chicken thighs
- salt and pepper to taste
- 6 slices prosciutto (thin sliced)
- 2 tablespoons minced garlic, divided
- 1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
- 1/4 cup dry white wine (optional)
- 1 cup sour cream
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Drizzle butter into a casserole dish. Season chicken with salt, pepper, and 1 tablespoon garlic. Wrap chicken thighs in prosciutto, and place in casserole dish. Sprinkle mushrooms and remaining garlic on top of chicken.
Bake in a preheated oven until juices run clear, about 1 hour. Remove chicken to a platter, and cover with aluminum foil to keep warm.
Pour drippings from casserole into a skillet set over medium-low heat. Whisk in wine and sour cream, and cook until warmed through, about 5 to 7 minutes. Pour over chicken, and serve.
