Terrific chicken dish! Wow, I really enjoyed this. It was dead simple to put together, and the taste was excellent. I used prosciutto for the ham, and about 1/4 c sake and 1/4 c sauvignon blanc for the wine. These are on the dryer side, so a teaspoon of sugar sweetened it up just a tiny bit. Wonderful over white rice with a green salad on the side. Thanks for posting this easy, tasty recipe.
