A flavorful chicken dish that will satisfy picky eaters and those trying to eat better.

Our friend’s at George’s Dreshertown ShopnBag have given us a delicious chicken saltimbocca recipe that is simple to make for two people, or the entire family.

Ingredients:

  • 8 Chicken cutlets, about 2 ounces each
  • 8 thin slices of prosciutto
  • 8 large leaves of fresh sage
  • ½ teaspoon of salt
  • ¼ teaspoon of freshly ground black pepper
  • ½ cup flour
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • ½ cup dry white wine
  • ½ cup chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
     

Directions:

  • Place 1 slice of prosciutto along 1 side of each chicken cutlet sluice and top with a sage leaf.
  • Fold chicken over to cover prosciutto and sage.
  • Pound along edge to seal or secure with toothpick.
  • Sprinkle with salt and pepper and dredge in flour.
     
  • Heat half the olive oil in large skillet over medium-high heat.
  • When oil is hot, add half the chicken and cook for 1 minute, turning once until both sides are golden brown, (reduce heat if flour coating begins to burn), transfer to a plate.
  • Repeat with remaining olive oil and chicken and remove chicken to plate.
     
  • Add white wine to skillet and bring to a boil while scraping browned bits from bottom of skillet.
  • Reduce liquid to about one-half, then add chicken broth. Return chicken to skillet and cook an additional 5 to 6 minutes until liquid reduces by 1/3 and chicken is cooked throughout.
  • Stir in butter and serve immediately.
