Interesting Ingredients for Chicken Saltimbocca

Chicken Saltimbocca starts out with boneless chicken breasts, filleted for a thin, easy to work with piece.  I typically purchase bone-in chicken, then remove the bones and skin so I save money in the process.  I place the chicken breast on a cutting board then place one hand over the top and with a knife, cut horizontal to the cutting board, making two thin pieces of chicken.  I then take the chicken and pound thinner with a frying pan or meat mallet.  Once thin, I layer fresh or dried sage leaves and prosciutto, an Italian style smoked bacon that is sliced very very thin.  It has a marvelous flavor that filters through the chicken, making the whole dish fantastic.  The chicken is then rolled with the toppings on the inside, dredged in seasoned flour, and sauteed in olive oil for a browned crispy exterior.  Chicken Saltimbocca is the perfect dish to impress anyone.

Freezing Chicken Saltimbocca

It’s easy to make up Chicken Saltimbocca and freeze it for later.  Simply make it as instructed above, but don’t dredge in the flour.  Place a toothpick to hold each one closed, and gently lay them out on a parchment covered baking sheet.  Freeze until solid, then place the Chicken Saltimbocca in a freezer grade plastic zippy bag that is labeled with the contents and date.  On the day you want to cook them, remove from the freezer and allow to thaw completely.  Continue with the recipe as described.  You’ll have a fantastic dinner of Chicken Saltimbocca any time you like!
