1/4 tspSea Salt and Freshly Ground Black Pepper


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

  4. Butterfly your chicken breast in half, season with salt and pepper, and a teaspoon of oil. Sear in a hot saute pan over medium high heat for about 3 minutes per side.
  5. Remove from pan, let cool slightly, then top with a slice of prosciutto, goat cheese, some fig slices, some basil leaves and a splash of balsamic vinegar.

  7. Serve on top of the beans and potatoes.


  • ​Chicken breast is an excellent source of high quality protein and is low in fat. A 3 ounce serving (the size of a deck of cards) of chicken breast has 31 grams of protein, 4 grams of fat and only 1 gram of saturated fat. Protein is needed to maintain and build muscle and for the body to repair cells and create new ones. Chicken is a good source of vitamin B6, which is needed for a healthy immune system and to keep blood sugar levels stable. 
  • For a vegetarian version of this recipe, omit the prosciutto and use the stuffing to fill Portobello mushroom caps. Did you know that Portobello mushrooms are more mature crimini mushrooms? Mushrooms contain compounds such as beta-D-glucans that may support the immune system by increasing the activity of white blood cells.
  • Figs are a symbol of fertility in many cultures. They are a good source of fibre, which can help you get to and keep a healthy body weight. A healthy weight is important for fertility. Figs also have potassium, a nutrient that helps lower blood pressure. This can improve sexual function.
