Tasty Tuesday: Proscuitto Wrapped Rosemary Chicken

I haven’t posted a Tasty Tuesday in a long time.  I’ve been trying lots of new recipes lately but haven’t had time to share them.  Last night I made this recipe which I found on pinterest.  The prep time was 10 min, then I baked it in the oven for 40 minutes at 375º.  I love how the house was filled with the smell of rosemary.

Chicken Thighs Wrapped in Prosciutto w/ Rosemary (adapted from Rachael Ray):

 photo proscuitto.jpg
All prepped and ready for the oven

1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling
2 large cloves garlic, peeled and very thinly sliced
1 package or bundle fresh rosemary
8 pieces good quality boneless, skinless chicken thighs, trimmed of fat
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
8 thin slices prosciutto di Parma
2 lemons, cut into thin wedges
Drizzle balsamic vinegar

Pour about 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil into a shallow dish and add the garlic.

Strip the leaves off one sprig of rosemary and finely chop, about 1 tablespoon. Add the chopped rosemary to the bowl with the garlic and oil. Break the remaining rosemary up into 8 small sprigs about the size of the chicken pieces.

Season the chicken pieces with salt and pepper to taste, and add them to the garlic mixture. Turn to coat (I used my hands for this).

Wrap the chicken pieces in prosciutto, placing a rosemary sprig in the center before wrapping. The sprigs should stick out a bit at the edges of the chicken.   Drizzle balsamic vinegar on top before serving and serve with lemon slices.

Bake at 375º for 40 minutes.

Chicken Pox – At 48 hrs

Wednesday morning I noticed a red bump on Enzo’s finger. At the time I thought it was a bug bite. When I picked him up from daycare yesterday he had several more red bumps. One of the daycare kids has been out all week with hand, foot and mouth disease so I thought I better take him to the urgent care. The Dr said since he has no bumps on the bottom of his feet or in his mouth he thinks it’s chicken pox. He said that it is the time of year they start to see it. He said that it usually is onset with a fever and Enzo hasn’t had one but that maybe in part to just getting off meds for being sick and trying to prevent pneumonia. Poor guy has been sick off and on since 6 weeks and the Dr says it’s because he’s in daycare and also exposed to germs that Addison brings home from school as well.

The one bump on his finger looked like it was getting infected(from constantly putting his hands in his mouth) so the Dr gave an antibiotic for that and stated if he woke up this morning with bumps on his scalp, face and more on his body that it’s definitely chicken pox.

I took him back to the Dr on Thursday after work due to more bumps appearing and the ones he already had getting redder.  The Dr stated it is chicken pox and started him on Acyclovir

Chicken Pox Update

Enzo seems to be doing better. He is on acyclovir 4 times a day so that really put a stop to the spreading of the chicken pox. Friday and Saturday we gave him a collodial oatmeal bath and yesterday we had him in the pool (salt water pool) and it’s really started to dry out the bumps. They are currently all scabbed over so tomorrow I will probably take him back to daycare. We have a follow-up appt on Friday with the Dr. Thankfully it seems to be a mild case of them!
