  • 4 skinless boneless chicken breast halves
  • 8 large fresh sage leaves
  • 8 slices thin prosciutto about 3 ounces

Lemon sauce

  • 1/2 cup plus 2 teaspoons flour
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth low-sodium
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons dry white wine
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice fresh squeezed


  • Place chicken between 2 sheets of plastic wrap on work surface. Using mallet, pound chicken to 1/3-inch thickness. Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper. Place 2 sage leaves atop each chicken breast half. Top each chicken breast with 2 prosciutto slices, pressing to adhere. Spread 1/2 cup flour on plate. Turn chicken in flour to lightly coat both sides.
  • Melt butter with oil in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken, prosciutto side down; cook 4 minutes. Turn chicken over and cook just until cooked through, about 3 minutes. Transfer to platter and cover to keep warm; reserve skillet.
  • Whisk wine with remaining 2 teaspoons flour in small bowl. Add broth and lemon juice to same skillet; bring to boil. Add wine mixture; whisk until sauce thickens slightly, about 30 seconds. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
