Try this and you'll know why they call it saltimbocca--Italian for 'jump in your mouth.' It's kind of like it jumps right off of your plate. Though it's traditionally made with veal, I made it with chicken. Quick, easy, and so delicious!

  • If cutlets are thick, lay them between 2 sheets of wax paper and pound to 1/2-inch thickness with flat side of a meat mallet or bottom of a small, heavy skillet. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Put 2 large (or 5 small) sage leaves on top of each cutlet, then wrap 2 slices of prosciutto crosswise around each cutlet, holding sage in place.
  • Heat 1 1/2 tablespoons oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add 4 cutlets and cook until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about 2 minutes per side. Transfer to a platter; tent with foil to keep warm. Repeat with remaining 1 1/2 tablespoons oil and remaining 4 cutlets.
  • Add wine to skillet and simmer, scraping up any browned bits, 1 minute. Add broth and simmer until slightly reduced, 4 to 5 minutes. Remove from heat, add butter, and swirl skillet until butter has melted and sauce is creamy. Spoon 2 tablespoons sauce over each cutlet and serve.

  • Begin by turning the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Heat the olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the sage leaves with stems and let simmer until the sage has crisped and the oil has infused with the sage flavoring, about 2 minutes. Remove the sage and reserve the oil in the skillet.
  • If you have thick chicken breasts, butterfly them in half. Place the chicken between two pieces of plastic wrap and, using the flat side of a meat tenderizer, pound out until an even 1/2-inch-thick. Remove from the plastic and sprinkle each chicken breast with the salt and pepper on both sides. Then dredge in the flour and dust off the excess.
  • Add the canola oil to the same skillet over medium-high heat with the sage infused olive oil. Working in batches, add the chicken breasts to the skillet, searing on both sides. After 2 to 3 minutes, turn the chicken breasts and brown the other side for 2 minutes. Chop the sage that was crisping with the olive oil and sprinkle on the chicken breasts. Place a single slice of prosciutto on top of each chicken breast and press it down firmly so it sticks. Then add the provolone slices on top. Place in the oven for 5 minutes to melt the cheese. Remove from the oven and set aside.
  • Deglaze the pan with the white wine and cook over high heat until reduced slightly. Add the chicken broth and simmer until reduced by half. Remove the pan from the heat and add the cold butter cubes. Swirl until the butter has melted completely and the sauce has a sheen to it. Pour the sauce over the chicken and garnish with the parsley.

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
8 fresh sage leaves and stems
4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (6 ounces each)
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup canola oil
4 thin slices prosciutto
4 ounces thinly sliced provolone
1/2 cup dry white wine
1 cup low-sodium chicken broth
6 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into small cubes
2 tablespoons chopped Italian parsley

  • Place the chicken cutlets flat on the work surface. Sprinkle the chicken with salt and pepper. Lay 1 slice of prosciutto atop each chicken cutlet.
  • Squeeze the frozen spinach to remove the excess water. Season the spinach with salt and pepper. In a small bowl, toss the spinach with 1 tablespoon of oil to coat.
  • Arrange an even, thin layer of spinach atop the prosciutto slices. Sprinkle the Parmesan evenly over each. Beginning at the short tapered end, roll up each chicken cutlet as for a jellyroll. Secure with a toothpick.
  • Heat the remaining 2 tablespoons of oil in a heavy large skillet over high heat. Add the chicken and cook just until golden brown, about 2 minutes per side. Add the chicken broth and lemon juice, and scrape the browned bits off the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon. Bring the liquid to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium. Cover and simmer until the chicken is just cooked through, about 8 to 10 minutes. Transfer the chicken to a platter. Simmer the cooking liquid over high heat until it is reduced to about 2/3 cup, about 5 minutes. Season the cooking liquid with salt and pepper, to taste. Remove toothpicks from the chicken. Drizzle the reduced cooking liquid over the chicken and serve immediately.

  • Cook mushrooms in the sauté pan over high heat, 5 minutes, or until beginning to brown. Add additional oil as needed to prevent burning.

Saltimbocca's name means to "jump in the mouth" with flavor. It is a restaurant dish, but at home on a weeknight, a chicken breast version makes a very tasty facsimile. Pound the chicken and marinate it in a mixture of chopped sage, garlic and olive oil, then brown it quickly before it goes under the broiler with cheese and a slice of prosciutto. Fried sage leaves make a savory garnish. There's no sauce. Wilted spinach is the best accompaniment by far. Actually, it fits right in with the current nostalgic trend toward retro Italian-American cooking.

  • Using a meat mallet, pound the chicken to flatten a bit. Salt and pepper each piece on both sides and place on a platter. Sprinkle with chopped sage, garlic, red pepper flakes (if using) and olive oil. Massage in the seasoning to distribute, cover and marinate at room temperature for one hour, or refrigerate for up to several hours.
  • Heat a wide skillet over medium heat and add 3 tablespoons olive oil. When the oil looks wavy, add the sage leaves and let them crisp for about 30 seconds. Remove and drain.
  • Brown the chicken breasts in the oil for about 2 minutes per side, then transfer to a baking dish large enough to fit them in one layer.
  • Top each piece with 2 sage leaves, a slice of prosciutto and a slice of fontina. Broil for 2 to 3 minutes, until the cheese is bubbling. Garnish with remaining sage leaves.

Creamy and delicious pasta that vegetarians and carnivores alike love. You can also divide the pasta into serving plates after step three, and instead of mixing the yolks etc. you can put them into little piles on the pasta - looks very pretty. Original recipe is from Conrad Gallagher's "In 3 easy Steps" cookbook.
