    Serves: 4 

    • 4 skinless chicken breasts, pounded to an even thickness
    • 4 slices of prosciutto
    • 4 sage leaves
    • 1 tablespoon butter
    • 1/2 glass dry white wine
    • freshly ground black pepper to taste
    • 1 pinch salt

    1. Place chicken breasts on a sheet of baking paper. Lay 1 slice of prosciutto and 1 sage leaf on each breast. Roll chicken up from the short end like a swiss roll, and secure with wooden skewers.
    2. Heat the butter in a fry pan over a medium high heat. Add the chicken and cook it for a couple of minutes on all sides, until well browned. Add wine and season with salt and pepper. Continue to cook until chicken is cooked through, about 8 to 10 minutes.

    Saltimbocca in Italian literally means "jumps in the mouth", and that is just what this did! Tender and juicy, and very flavorful chicken dish. Traditionally this is served as a "secondo", or main course - after the "primo" or pasta course. Being that it was just our family, we ate this next to our pasta! Grazie, Aldo, for this authentic Italian recipe!  -  12 Apr 2016  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    A quick and easy chicken dish with loads of flavour! I actually didn't have sage so I sprinkled lots of dried herbs over the chicken before rolling. I made a pan sauce with the white wine by adding some grainy mustard, milk and butter. Husband loved it. Thank you!  -  14 Jun 2013  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)


    This was good; I used a chardonnay for the white wine. It didn't blow me away but good just the same. Didn't have fresh sage so sprinkled the chicken with dried before adding the prosciutto. Easy peasy too.  -  01 Mar 2018  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
