Heat a grill pan, griddle pan, or outdoor grill over medium-high heat.
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 ham. Drizzle the chicken with more oil and grill for 12-15 minutes, turning occasionally.
Drizzle balsamic vinegar on top before serving and serve with lemon slices
* update on 12/10: a reader wrote that she baked these at 375F for 40 minutes and they came out great. I think I will try that next time so it doesn't wreck my stovetop
