Recipe By: Tobuchan (https://cookbuzz.com/kitchen/25)
Serves 2 Prep: 8 min Cook: 10 min

Ingredients

Chicken breast fillets 160-180g
Pepper a little
Parma ham slices 6
Sage leaves 7-8
Flour as required
Butter 2.5 tsp
White wine 100ml
Salt a pinch

Method

1
Cut the chicken into 6 pieces and tenderise to make 2mm thick. Season with pepper.
2
Put one leaf of sage on each chicken piece and cover with a slice of parma ham cut in two. Dredge with flour and shake off the excess.
3
Put 1 tsp butter in a large frying pan. Add the chicken and fry on medium heat for 3-4 minutes each side, then transfer to a serving dish.
4
In the same pan, add the remaining 1.5 tsp butter and pour in the white wine. Add the remaining sage leaves. Reduce the sauce and allow the alcohol to evaporate.
5
When it's reduced by half and has thickened, pour over the chicken and serve with some salad alongside.

Tips & Note

You don't need to season the chicken with salt at Step 1 as it will soon be wrapped with the salty parma ham.
If you don't like sage, you can use basil instead.
