Lemon Chicken Saltimbocca

Jennifer and Dave We love Chicken Saltimbocca, but really wanted to find a healthy version. This recipe is from SimpleHealthyKitchen.com; it is literally one of our all-time favorites. It is a lovely weeknight or date night dinner for two. It is also a crowd-pleaser at dinner parties with family and friends

Prep
Cook

Ingredients
4
(4 oz) chicken cutlets

tsp salt
12
fresh sage leaves
2
oz very thinly sliced prosciutto, cut into 8 thin strips

Directions

Sprinkle salt on each chicken cutlet evenly. Place 3 sage leaves on top of each cutlet. Wrap each cutlet with 2 prosciutto strips to keep sage leaves in place.

Over medium heat heat a large skillet. Add 1 Tbsp olive oil to pan and swirl to coat. Place chicken in skillet and cook for 2 minutes. Flip chicken and cook for an additional 2 minutes. Remove chicken from pan and place on a platter (keep warm).

Re-whisk cornstarch mixture and add to remaining 1 Tbsp oil in a pan, bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Cook until sauce is slightly thickened (approx. 1 min.) stirring constantly. Spoon sauce over chicken.
