By now I am sure most of you have seen the new Star Wars trailer. If not, do it now. I may have freaked out just a little bit when I saw it and now already cannot wait for next Christmas – the finale of Mockingjay and new Star Wars! But there are exciting movies to see this year as well. I already saw Mockingjay Part 1 and up next is the finale of the Hobbit. The winter holidays rock, don’t they? To make up for the colder temperatures we get stuffed with amazing food, decorate cookies, see pretty lights, and get to snuggle in front of a cozy fire and/or movie.

But today’s recipe is not for decorated cookies or even a hot beverage to drink while enjoying wintry activities. It does have some of those comforting flavors that come out this time of year though and shockingly enough it is in the form of a salad. Roasted sweet potatoes are tossed in a mixed greens salad with dried cherries, candied walnuts, and a sage vinaigrette. I got to bust out my white balsamic vinegar for this vinaigrette but you could definitely use regular if you cannot find white. Different color, same taste.

Prosciutto-Wrapped Chicken with Balsamic Date Sauce

Fancy looking food doesn’t have to be difficult. Cook up with prosciutto-wrapped chicken with a balsamic date sauce in under 20 minutes.

Prosciutto-Wrapped Chicken with Balsamic Date Sauce

How do you make cheese stuffed and bacon wrapped chicken fancy? You use prosciutto instead of bacon and slather it with some balsamic-date sauce. This chicken may look and sound fancy but it is also easy to make, with the hardest part being not eating the prosciutto before wrapping it around each piece of chicken (maybe you should buy extra just in case). After cooking the chicken to golden perfection, balsamic vinegar and chopped dates are combined in the same skillet to absorb all the leftover chicken, prosciutto, and cheese flavors. Spoon over chicken and enjoy.
