Chicken Saltimbocca

By petals

  • 1/2 cup all pupose flour, 12 fresh sage leaves, finely chopped, 4 bonless, skinless chicken breast { about a pound}, salt and pepper to taste, 8 thin slices prosciutto, 1 1/2 Tbsp. unsalted butter, 1 1/2 Tbsp. olive oil, 1/2 lemon cut into wedges

  1. Place flour in a shallow bowl and stir in sage. Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper. Coat each breast with seasoned flour, shaking excess back into the bowl. Drape a slice of prosciutto over each side of eash breast, overlapping slighty. 2. Warm half of butter and oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Carefully add half of the chicken, taking care to keep prosciutto in place. Cook until browned on both sides, turning once, 4 to 6 minutes or until done. Transfer chicken to a plate and cover to keep warm. Repeat with remaining butter, oil and chicken. Serve immediatrly with the lemon wedges on the side. I serve this with low-fat mashed pototoes, and green beans.

Petals here. I forgot to say that to cut the sodium levels to this recipe you can use deli sliced ham instead of thr prosciutto, just add the ham durning the last 5 min, of the cooking. Really cuts the sodium by more then half. You also squeeze the lemon wedges over the chicken according to your taste.
