Chicken Saltimbocca

Now this is the sort of meal that I love to make.  Easy, very good and pretty healthy... it is another meal from the BH&G Ultimate Italian magazine.  It is really called Turkey Saltimbocca but when I went to Target, I could not find any turkey cutlets so substituted boneless chicken.  I doubt there is much of a difference

Main ingredients.  The chicken was pounded thin and then dredged in a flour mixture that includes S&P and sage.

Instead of using vegetable oil as the recipe states, I used olive oil.  Chicken is sauteed about 3 minutes on first side, then turned and topped with a slice of ham and swiss cheese.  Add chicken broth and a dry white wine, cover and let simmer about 4 additional minutes or until chicken is done and cheese melts.  Be sure to spoon sauce over the chicken... it has a great flavor.

Dinner was complete with Uncle Ben's 90 second wild rice and frozen green beans from Trader Joe's.  Mr. John gave this 4 stars and is happy to have leftovers for a night I don't cook!
