This is a recipe I learned during a Central Market wine and food pairing class taught by Andrea Immer, a master sommelier and gourmet cook. She made this dish to illustrate how well the flavors of sage, prosciutto and chicken pair with Chianti. This is an excellent, easy chicken dish. I use small chicken breast halves – 5-6 ounces each. If you have very large (8-12 oz) chicken breast halves, start with 2 and split them in half cross-wise to make 4. It’s very important to use the right size chicken breast here so the cooking time will be accurate.

Directions

  1. Pound chicken to an even thickness (about 3/4 inch). Lay 5 sage leaves on top of each chicken breast halve. Wrap a slice of prosciutto around each sage-topped chicken breast and secure with toothpick.
  2. Heat oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium. Place chicken breasts in skillet, sage side down. Cover skillet and cook chicken for 10 minutes. Remove cover. Turn chicken over and cook uncovered for another 4-5 minutes. Add sherry and stir, scraping up any extra bits from bottom of pan.
  3. Plate chicken and spoon sauce over top,.
