  • Beat the chicken breasts to roughly twice the original size and lay two rippled slices prosciutto on top secured with a cocktail stick. Dust lightly with flour, season and set aside.
  • Heat the oil and fry sage leaves until crisp, drain onto kitchen paper.
  • Add butter to the pan and fry chicken breasts on each side until browned. Remove chicken from pan and set aside.
  • Add the wine stirring well to scrape all bits from the base. Let the mixture bubble until the wine is reduced by about half. Stir in cream, return chicken to the pan and heat through.
  • Scatter in the fried sage leaves and serve with pasta.

    This recipe can easily be multiplied to serve more. It doesn't specify the type of pasta to use but I have always used spaghetti or linguine. Accompany with a nice bottle of Frascati? Lisa
