Chicken cutlets with prosciutto and sage.
This recipe is inspired by "Saltimbocca alla Romana", a classic Roman dish. In this variation, the traditional veal cutlets are replaced by chicken breast cutlets.
|1||chicken breasts, boneless, skinless, thinly sliced||300 g|
|1 tbsp||cornstarch||8 g|
|6 leaves||fresh sage||2 g|
|35 g||Parma ham/Prosciutto||3 slices|
|1 tbsp||olive oil||15 mL|
|2 tbsp||white wine||30 mL|
|1/4 cup||chicken broth||65 mL|
|2 tsp||margarine non-hydrogenated||9 g|
|ground pepper to taste [optional]|
Before you start
Keep the serving plates in the oven at the lowest setting so they are warm when you serve.
- Slice the breast horizontally into very thin cutlets. Flatten these cutlets using a rolling pin or meat pounder. Coat each cutlet with the cornstarch; then shake off the excess. Place a leaf of sage on each piece and cover with a slice of prosciutto. Use a toothpick to keep the small sandwich together.
- Heat the oil in a pan. Working in batches, add a few cutlets at a time. Start with the chicken side down, and cook over high heat. After 3 min, turn to brown the prosciutto side. Deglaze with the wine. Lower the heat, cover, and cook 2 min. Season with a little salt (prosciutto is already fairly salty) and pepper to taste. Remove the cutlets from the pan and keep them warm. Repeat the operation with the remaining cutlets.
- Pour the broth into the pan, then cook over high-heat until reduced by half, about 1 min. Remove the pan from the heat, then stir in the margarine, about 30 sec, until a sauce consistency is obtained.
- Place the cutlets on the warmed plates, remove the toothpicks, spoon the sauce over the cutlets then serve.
