After a crazy week of work (thanks to conferences & mainly basketball – no complaints though, my girls are in the semifinals this week!), I finally got to cook this weekend. I combined two recipes I found online for the chicken saltimbocca. One was from foodnetwork.com (by Giada) and the other was from food.com.
Here are the links:
I have made Giada’s version before. I wanted to try something new. I left out spinach and used sage instead. I didn’t roll the chicken this time; instead I just layered it with sage, prosciutto, and shredded mozzarella. For the sauce, I first deglazed with white wine, then added chicken stock and fresh lemon juice. Seasoned with S&P, then took it off the heat and added a little butter.
I was very happy with the results. I made couscous and green beans for sides (another Giada recipe). I have made the green beans many times before and am never disappointed. (I did use dried basil this time and left out the parmesan crisps.) Here’s the link:
Overall, it was a very satisfying meal. I was very happy with it! Here are some photos:
