Ingredients

  • 4 chicken fillets
  • 4 slices prosciutto
  • cup dry white wine (80 ml)
  • 4 fresh sage leaves
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • pepper
  • salt

Instructions

  1. Make the chicken fillets a little thinner if you find them too thick. Just cover the fillets with a piece of cling film and then pound them lightly with a meat mallet until they are thin. Place a sage leaf on top of each fillet and season with a little sprinkle of pepper and salt.
