- Ready In:
- 4 (4 ounce) chicken cutlets
- 1⁄8 teaspoon salt
- 12 fresh sage leaves
- 2 ounces prosciutto, very thinly sliced, cut into 8 thin strips
- 4 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil, divided
- 1⁄3 cup low sodium chicken broth
- 1⁄4 cup fresh lemon juice
- 1⁄2 teaspoon cornstarch
- 4 lemon wedges
- Sprinkle chicken cutlets evenly with salt. Place 3 sage leaves on each chicken cutlet; wrap 2 prosciutto slices around each cutlet, securing the sage leaves in place.
- Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add 1 tbsp oil to the skillet, swirling to coat the pan. Add the wrapped chicken cutlets to the pan; cook cutlets 2 minutes on each side or until the cutlets are done. Remove chicken cutlets from the pan to a platter and keep warm.
- Combine the chicken broth, lemon juice, and 1/2 tsp cornstarch in a small bowl; stir with a whisk until the cornstarch mixture is smooth. Add the cornstarch mixture and remaining 1 tsp extra-virgin olive oil to the pan; bring to a boil, stirring constantly with a whisk. Cook the mixture for 1 minute or until the sauce is slightly thickened, stirring constantly. Serve the sauce over the chicken. Enjoy!

Delicious! One of my all time favorite chicken dishes and this version was quick, fairly simple, and tasty. I used boneless chicken breasts pounded thin in place of the cutlets. It stretched the prep time to about 30 minutes. I also made six, split between two pans and doubled the sauce which I then used over a quinoa side dish I prepared.
