Chicken Saltimbocca

Get a little taste of Italy with Chicken Saltimbocca. Traditionally make with veal in Italy, I have substituted chicken to make a delicious chicken recipe.

Saltimbocca means "jump into mouth". This recipe for chicken using prosciutto and sage will certainly jump into your mouth because of the robust flavors.

With preparation taking only about 12 minutes and cooking time of 30 minutes, Chicken Saltimbocca is worth the small effort.

You will need:

4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, 6 oz. each
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. black pepper
1/3 c. all-purpose flour
1 tbsp. olive oil, divided
Cooking spray
2/3 c. dry white wine
2 tsp. butter
2 tsp. fresh chopped sage
1 oz. thinly slice prosciutto, 2 slices each cut in half
1/2 c. shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese

  1. Place chicken breasts between 2 sheets of heavy-duty plastic wrap and pound to 1/4" thickness. Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper. Dredge in flour
  2. Preheat broiler>
  3. Heat 1 1/2 tsp. oil in a large skillet coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat. Add 2 chicken breasts and cook 4 minutes on each side or until lightly browned and done. Place chicken on a jelly roll pan coated with cook spray. Repeat with remaining oil and chicken. Add wine to pan, scraping to loosen browned bits. (You want all the goodies). Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 6 minutes or until is reduce to about 1/4 cup. Add butter, stirring until it melts.
  4. While sauce is simmering, sprinkle sage over chicken and top each piece with half a slice of proscuitto and 2 tbsp. mozzarella. Broil about 3 minutes or until cheese melts and is lightly browned. Place chicken on your favorite plates and spoon sauce over chicken.

Chicken Saltimbocca is a wonderful chicken recipe to serve with your favorite risotto.
