Revamp Your Chicken Dinner with this Delicious Chicken Saltimbocca Recipe

Updated: Dec 2, 2023

When it comes to chicken, what is your favorite way to make it?

One of my all-time favorites is Chicken Saltimbocca. What is Chicken Saltimbocca you ask? It is a version of the Roman classic, pounded chicken cutlets topped with prosciutto and sage leaves are pan-seared, then served in a simple white wine-butter sauce. Traditionally it is made with veal, but I find chicken to be an excellent substitute. Below is my favorite recipe with some links at the bottom in case you need to purchase some supplies.

  • 4 (6-ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, butterflied and lightly pounded

  • Kosher salt

  • Freshly ground black pepper

  • 8 large sage leaves

  • 4 thin slices prosciutto di Parma

  • All-purpose flour, for dusting

  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into tablespoons, divided

  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons dry white wine

  • 1 cup chicken stock or low-sodium broth


  1. Gather the ingredients.

  2. Season the chicken with salt and pepper. Place two sage leaves on each breast. Top with a slice of prosciutto, trimming it to fit. Press the prosciutto to help it adhere to the chicken.

  3. Dust the chicken with flour, shaking off the excess.

  4. Heat a large skillet. Add the oil and 2 tablespoons of the butter. Add two of the breasts, prosciutto side up, and cook over high heat until nearly cooked through, about 3 minutes.

  5. Turn the chicken and cook just until the prosciutto begins to shrink, about 1 minute. Transfer the chicken to a plate; repeat with the remaining chicken. Pour off any fat and wipe out the skillet.

  6. Add the remaining butter to the skillet.

  7. Add the wine and cook over high heat until reduced by half, 2 minutes.

  8. Add the stock and bring to a boil. Cook until reduced by half, 3 minutes.

  9. Return the chicken to the skillet, prosciutto side up, and simmer over moderate heat until the chicken is cooked through, about 2 minutes; season with salt and pepper. Transfer the chicken to plates, pour the sauce on top, and serve.
