How to make it

  • Mash garlic through a press, or mince finely.
  • Make a paste out of 1 Tbsp olive oil, garlic, sage, and salt.
  • Divide paste among chicken, runbbing into one side of each breast.
  • Top with a slice of ham. If desired, secure with toothpicks, though with careful handling those aren't necessary.
  • In a heavy skillet over high heat, heat 2 Tbsp olive oil until smoking. Place two chicken pieces, ham side down, and cook 30 seconds. Turn and cook 15 seconds more. Remove to a plate and tent with foil to keep warm. Repeating the procedure with the remaining pieces. BE CAREFUL NOT TO OVERCOOK THE MEAT!
  • Deglaze the pan with the chicken broth and white wine, simmering until the volume is reduced by half. Salt and pepper to taste, and if desired, finish with a squeeze of lemon juice.
  • Serve saltimbocca drizzled with sauce.

    Girl, I need to stop reading through your recipes before I torture myself anymore. I want to cook so many different dishes and eat them right now! I must plan some evenings for these dishes.
