& sage sauce


Chicken Saltimbocca Recipe

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 1 hour, 30 minutes
Serves: 8

Our Chicken Saltimbocca recipe is a spin on the core ingredients of this classic dish: meat (in our case chicken), paired with prosciutto and sage. In our version, we stray a bit from tradition by using the prosciutto and sage to build a delicious, creamy sauce, replacing pounded cutlets with cubes of chicken cooked in the sauce in order to keep them moist.

With the subtle flavor and rich sauce of the Chicken Saltimbocca, a wine with elegance and creamy texture is the way to go. We love French white wines from the Rhone and the Chateau La Nerthe is a perfect wine for the pairing. For our steal, Hogue Fume Blanc from Washington also walks the fine line of full body and bright but subtle flavor.

Wine Pairing

2010 Chateau La Nerthe Blanc,
Chateauneuf du Pape
Dreamy and suave, this white Rhone stunner is seductive with flavor to spare. ($55)

2010 Hogue Fume Blanc,
Columbia Valley, Washington
Fruit-forward rather than tart in style, this wine has charm and a pleasant hint of creaminess. ($12)

Chicken Saltimbocca Ingredients:

2 lbs chicken breasts, cut into cubes
3 oz prosciutto
3.5 oz sundried tomatoes
1 small yellow onion
3 cups low-sodium chicken stock
