This recipe seems pretty intimidating. Honestly though it is made with a handful of inexpensive fresh ingredients along with pantry stapes you probably already have. Even the process of assembling these Prosciutto Wrapped Spinach Ricotta Stuffed Chicken Thighs is fairly easy. Don’t let the title fool you. All you do is roll up pounded out chicken thighs around a cheesy spinach filling. Then wrap the mess in prosciutto or bacon.
Rolled dishes, both sweet and savory, are actually called a roulade which originates from the French word ‘rouler, meaning ‘to roll’. It is a great way to essentially get your main dish and a side dish all in one! Wrapping these stuffed chicken thighs in prosciutto not only gives them great flavor. It also helps keep the filling intact while you bake them. Just be sure to secure them with toothpicks.
