When you think about Italy and its flavor, we often associate it with tomato sauce, pizza, and even pasta. But, little do know that aside from those mentioned food, Italy is also great with roasting chicken with just a handful of ingredients — easy and yet memorable.

A wonderful chicken recipe inspired by the beautiful city of Italy. This easy chicken breast recipe is rolled with a delicious parma ham seasoned with freshly chopped rosemary. The sauce is made from a combination of balsamic vinegar and oil. It is then cooked in the oven for 25-30 minutes until fully cooked. The combination of the sauce with knobs of butter and the chicken wrapped with parma ham is a complete mesmerizing flavor of Italy.
