Chicken Scaloppine With Sage and Fontina Cheese - Giada

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by greyghost

Another yummy recipe from Giada De Laurentiis - love her show!!! I added minced garlic instead of halved garlic and just left in sauce. Also might not cut chicken next time - looked just as nice.

I absolutely love this recipe! It really makes for a nice presentation for a dinner party when sliced and placed on top of the sauce (posted a photo). I do my slices slightly at an angle. My husband loves the dish and likes a little extra cheese in his.
