Ingredients Needed

  1. 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  2. pound (115 g) prosciutto or good boiled ham, thinly sliced
  3. 40 leaves fresh or dry sage (Fresh is preferable.)
  4. 2 tablespoons (28 g) butter

Cooking Instructions

Place a chicken breast in a large, heavy, resealable plastic bag and pound it until it's inch (6 mm) thick.

Repeat with the remaining chicken breasts.

Once all your chicken breasts are pounded thin, place a layer of the prosciutto on each one, scatter about 10 sage leaves over each one, and roll each breast up.

Fasten with toothpicks.

Melt the butter with the olive oil in a heavy skillet over medium heat.

Add the chicken rolls and saute, turning occasionally, until golden all over.

Add the wine to the skillet, turn the heat to low, cover the skillet, and simmer for 15 minutes.

Remove the chicken rolls to a serving plate and cover to keep warm.

Turn the heat up to high and boil the liquid in the skillet hard for 5 minutes to reduce.

Spoon over the chicken rolls and serve.
