Lemony Sage Chicken Saltimbocca

by Chef Fabio Viviani


  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves (about 1-1/4 lbs.)
  • 8 fresh sage leaves
  • 8 very thinly sliced prosciutto
  • 1 Tbsp. Bertolli® Extra Light™ Tasting Olive Oil
  • 1/4 cup dry white wine
  • 1/4 cup chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice


  1. Place 2 sage leaves on top of each piece of chicken. Wrap 2 slices prosciutto around each piece of chicken. Heat Olive Oil in 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat and cook chicken, turning once, about 10 minutes or until chicken is thoroughly cooked. Remove chicken and keep warm.
  2. Add wine to same skillet and cook 1 minute. Add chicken broth and lemon juice and simmer, stirring occasionally, until sauce is reduced, about 5 minutes. Serve sauce over chicken. Garnish, if desired, with grated lemon peel and flat-leaf parsley.
