Ready In:




  • Season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper. Spread the flour on a plate and dredge each breast, coating evenly and shaking off the excess. Set aside.
  • In a large fry pan or sauté pan over medium-high heat, melt 1 Tbs. of the butter with the olive oil until very hot. Add the chicken breasts and cook until the undersides are golden brown, 5 to 6 minutes. Turn the chicken breasts over and continue to cook until they feel firm when pressed in the centers, 4 to 6 minutes more.
  • Reduce the heat to very low. Sprinkle the breasts evenly with the chopped or dried sage. Top each breast with a piece of prosciutto, then divide the cheese slices evenly among the breasts. Cover the pan tightly and cook until the cheese is melted, about 1 1/2 minutes. Transfer to a serving platter and tent with aluminum foil, being careful not to allow the foil to touch the cheese.
  • Increase the heat to high. When the pan is sizzling, add the wine and deglaze the pan, stirring to scrape up any browned bits stuck on the pan bottom. Boil until reduced to 1/4 cup, about 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and whisk in the remaining 1 Tbs. butter.
  • Spoon an equal amount of the sauce over each breast, then garnish with a sage leaf. Serve immediately. Serves 4.

  1. Absolutely perfect. The only changes made were: using fresh sage, 1/2 slice of provolone & prosciutto per chicken breast. I added mushrooms to the pan drippings, then deglazed the skillet with Pinot Grigio. After browning the chicken breasts, I placed then in a baking dish, topped with the mushrooms & sauce and finished off in the oven for 20 minutes. They turned out perfect. The sauce was divine! Served recipe#79431 for a side. Definitely company worthy. Awesome recipe MissTiff, thanks for sharing.
  2. I had never made any sort of 'Saltimbocca' before and was very, very happy with this recipe. I made it exactly as directed and wouldn't change a thing. I served it with roasted potatoes and asparagus bundles wrapped in proscuitto then roasted. Definitely a company worthy meal! Thanks so much for sharing!
  3. Amazing and easy to make! Didn't change a thing.....loved it!
  4. So good!!! There weren't any leftovers after this delicious dish! I made a couple changes. I used fresh sage and substituted chicken stock for the wine. Very easy!!
  5. We loved this! It's easy and delicious. I used a sliced mozzarella-provolone blend and my prosciutto was the thinly sliced. Worked beautifully!
