    MacChef's Note:

    Veloce in Italian means fast. This was created on an evening that needed to be fast! My husband likes his with a squeeze of lemon over the top. While traditional saltimboca requires pounding chicken with sage and prosciutto, this pasta sauce has the same components without the fussiness. Serve this over pasta of your choice.

    1. 1
      Heat a large sauce pan. Add 1 tablespoons of olive oil and gently brown the proscuitto over medium heat until almost crisp. The prosciutto will crisp up when cool. Careful, it does burn easily. Remove from pan and cool.
    2. 2
      In the prosciutto drippings brown chicken that is seasoned with salt and pepper. When chicken is almost done, add garlic and saute for 1 minute.
    3. 3
      Keeping chicken in the pan, deglaze with white wine. Cook for 2 minutes then add chicken broth, capers, sage and lemon zest. Cook until juice is reduced a little then add artichokes and cream.
    4. 4
      Continue to cook about 5 minutes until chicken is done, sauce is slightly reduced and artichokes are warmed through.
    5. 5
      Serve over cooked pasta, spinkled with crispy proscuitto, toasted pine nuts and parmesean cheese.

      Great recipe. As a mother of infant twins, this was fab, since it was fast and easy to make. I made it for NYE dinner and it was a huge hit! Thanks for sharing.

      MacChef, you did a great job with this tasty recipe. In an effort to cut costs, I used two tablespoons of pine nuts and 80g prosicutto (both cost the earthwhere I am in Aus). I used chicken thight fillets as I prefer them to breasts. I don't think these changes altered the outcome of the recipe at all.
