Proscuitto Wrapped Chicken Thighs

Yesterday, M and I volunteered to bring dinner over to our friends who recently had their second baby. I wanted something that would be easy for them to heat up, but still feel like they were eating a gourmet meal. I settled on a version of this chicken recipe that had made its way around Pinterest, accompanied by roasted asparagus and my cheater’s polenta. All they had to do was pop the chicken and asparagus in the oven and reheat the polenta in the microwave. Easy peasy! I made a double batch so M and I could also have the same chicken that evening.
