- 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves, sliced thin (6 ounces each)
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ¼ teaspoon pepper
- 4-8 fresh sage leaves
- 4 thin slices prosciutto or deli ham
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 tablespoon butter
- ½ cup chicken broth
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- 2 tablespoons white wine or additional chicken broth
- ½ cup plus 2 teaspoons all-purpose flour, divided
- Place ½ cup flour in a shallow bowl; set aside. Flatten chicken breasts to ¼-in. thickness. Sprinkle both sides with salt and pepper; top each breast with a thin slice prosciutto then 1-2 pieces of fresh sage, pressing to adhere. Dip chicken sides only in flour to coat.
- In a large skillet, heat oil and butter over medium heat; cook chicken for 3-4 minutes on each side or until lightly browned and chicken is no longer pink. Remove and keep warm.
- In a small bowl, whisk the chicken broth, lemon juice, wine and remaining flour; add to the skillet, stirring to loosen browned bits from pan. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 1 minute or until thickened. Spoon over chicken. Top chicken with lemon and sage if desired.
