Saltimbocca is a Roman dish initially made with veal, whose name translates "jump in the mouth." This is a guaranteed crowd pleaser.

This was really a wonderful dish! I have had the veal version made with prosciutto and did not like it all. Way to salty for my taste. I wrapped the seasoned ckn. with thinly sliced honey ham with the sage leaves inside and secured with a toothpick. I topped each with a slice of jarlsburg when adding the wine. It was beautiful and delicious. Thx. for posting!
