FANTASTIC RECIPE. Use this recipe as a company dinner when you want to wow your guests. I followed recipe exactly using half & half for the cream, and baby portobella mushrooms. I did not clarify the butter...was in a hurry. Because my chicken was rather thick, I baked it in a covered casserole for 20 mins., removed the foil, and baked an additional 10 mins. Perfect!!!I think this recipe would be excellent using deli sliced ham instead of the expensive (and salty) prosciutto. Thanks Judy for sharing this wonderful dinner recipe.
We had this last night for dinner. It is a five star recipe. It took a little work but very much worth the effort. I made this for two but cut the sauce ingredients in half. Wonderful. Please try this wonderful recipe. I served it with a spinach salad.
WOW!!! This is a great recipe. We've been making it for 20 years. It's a great recipe to make for a party. Cut the chicken halves in half. You can even get everything ready the day before. Bake it the day of the party and put in chafing dishes. Most people really enjoy it. YUMMY!
I made this for a friend who acts as my "guinea pig" for new recipes. I made it exactly as written except I used provolone cheese (that's what I had in the house) instead of Monterey jack. It was AMAZING! Looking forward to my next dinner party, this will wow them! Definitely raising the bar on myself with this one.
Delicious! I used the deli ham as suggested by other reviewers and it was great. I baked mine for 30 min as my chicken was a bit thick. I can't wait for leftovers tomorrow!
Great recipe...and not that much work! Didn't have everything on hand, so I used deli sliced ham rather than proscuitto, onions and a few tablespoons of dried chives rather than the green onion, and 1/2 and 1/2 vs. cream...and my entire family raved. Thanks Jude! P.S. looked up the word saltimbocca, which means "jumps in the mouth" in Italian....my kids loved that!
So delicious and much easier than I thought. Turned out perfect, and to many kudos from my family. Thanks for sharing!
I must say, being a Saltimbocca fan this was extremely tasty and easy! I used provolone and a good cut of prosciutto and would never replace that with an ordinary ham. My DS who now is 17 (majorily in the teenage years) gave huge thumbs up and actually ate two servings. Didn't serve over pasta like another reviewer suggested, but definitely will next (there will be a next time)! Only made 3 whole breasts, but kept the sauce ingredients the same for the "6" called for breasts. Oh & didn't use clarified butter, was too lazy and I really don't think it would have made a difference. Chef's hats off for this one!!!!!
This was delicious! I left out the mushrooms and used mozzerella cheese. I used regular butter since I did not have any clarified. A great dish to impress with.
I changes some of the direction ( instead of pan fried with flour, I just cubbed and stir fry the chicken), but still taste very good. Thank you!
