Prosciutto-Stuffed Chicken Bake

Talk about time-saving. The chicken's wild rice and broccoli side dish bakes in the same pan, meaning that all you need to do is toss up a simple green salad in order to make it a complete meal. When purchasing prosciutto from a deli, insist that the clerk place sheets of paper between the wafer-thin slices. Without paper, prosciutto slices are nearly impossible to separate.

Chicken Scarpariello

To make her Sunday-supper scarpariello -- chicken sauteed in a tangy lemon glaze with bell pepper -- Fran Parisi always uses a whole chicken cut into pieces, then cooks it on the stove for hours. Grace Parisi opts for faster-cooking boneless thighs and skips the bell pepper in favor of jarred Peppadews, sweet-spicy pickled peppers from South Africa, sold in many US supermarkets.
