4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

4 sage leaves, fully grown

4 slices prociutto ham

2 tablespoons butter

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

1/4 cup dry white wine


  1. Carefully flatten the breasts with the smooth side of a meat mallet, in between 2 pieces of plastic wrap. Place 1 sage leaf and 1 slice of prosciutto on each chicken breast and spear them onto the breast with a wooden toothpick. In a large frying pan, melt 1 tablespoon of butter. Add the breasts and pan-fry 2 to 3 minutes on each side. Lightly season the breasts with salt and pepper. Remove breasts from pan and keep warm.
  2. Dilute the pan juices with 1/4 cup white wine and bring to a rapid boil. With a heat resistant whisk, dissolve 1 tablespoon of butter into the sauce. Season with salt and pepper and return the breast to the pan and heat them up quickly.
  3. Serve on a preheated platter and drizzle with the pan juices.
