Chicken Saltimbocca

IMG_0970Saltimbocca means jump into your mouth.  When you combine chicken with prosciutto it’s so good your tongue will slap your brain clean out of your head !!  After checking out different recipes of this dish I have come up with my version.  Here it is:

4  boneless, skinless chicken breast halves pounded to an even  thickness
salt and pepper
1/2 cup of flour
4 tbs butter
4 tbs olive oil
1 tsb ground sage
4 large slices prosciutto
grated or sliced mozzarella cheese
parmesan cheese
1/2 cup white wine
Season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper.   Take the prosciutto and lay on top of the chicken and  pound until it sticks and the chicken is as thin as possible.  Dredge in flour until lightly coated.   In a large fry pan , melt the butter with the olive oil until very hot.  Add the chicken breasts and cook until the golden brown.  Remove the breasts and set aside.  Sprinkle breasts with parmesan cheese and top with mozzarella cheese.  Place in preheated oven at 350 drgrees until cheese is melted.  While the chicken is in the oven, add wine to remaining butter and oil and deglaze the pan stirring to scrape up any browned bits stuck on the pan bottom.  Boil until reduced to 1/4 cup.  When you take the chicken out pour the remaining sauce over the chicken.  CHEERS !!!
