Chicken Saltimbocca

Yield:
6 servings
Ingredients
  • 6 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, trimmed of fat and membranes
  • 24 fresh sage leaves, stems removed
  • 6 slices prosciutto
  • 1 Tbs. olive oil
  • 2 Tbs. dry oloroso sherry
Directions

Rinse and pat dry chicken breast halves and place them smooth-side up on a work surface. Place four sage leaves at an angle atop each chicken breast half, spacing them evenly for a uniform, striped look. Carefully center a prosciutto slice atop the chicken breast widthwise, covering sage leaves, and wrap the slice around, securing it in back with toothpicks.

In a nonstick skillet, heat olive oil on medium. Place chicken breasts sage-side down in pan, cover and cook 10 minutes. Turn chicken breasts and continue cooking, uncovered, until cooked though, 5-7 minutes depending on thickness.

Transfer chicken breasts to dinner plates. Add sherry to pan and increase heat to medium-high. Cook, scraping to loosen any browned bits, for 1 minute, until liquid in pan becomes a syrupy glaze. Place each chicken breast half on a dinner plate, spoon some pan glaze over each and serve immediately.
