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!

For a dish that tastes so good, this was really easy to make. The wine at the end really gives it some zip. I will definitely be making this again. Thank you!
