About this Recipe

What better way to celebrate romance than with italian food. Saltimbocca means “jump in your mouth” and this dish does! Simple, light, tasty, and satisfying.

Saltimbocca is a very popular Italian dish that is traditionally made with veal but can be made with chicken.


4 oz Package of maple leaf Chicken cutlets
1 bunch Fresh sage leaves
1/8 tsp Salt
3 oz Thinly sliced prosciutto cut into thin strips
4 tsp Olive oil, divided
1 tsp Cornstarch
1/4 cup Fresh lemon juice
1/3 cup Chicken broth


Sprinkle the chicken evenly with salt. Place 2-3 sage leaves on each cutlet depending on the size. Wrap 2 prosciutto slices around each cutlet, securing sage leaves in place.
Heat a large skillet over medium high heat. Add 1 tablespoon olive oil to pan, and coat. Add chicken to pan and cook for 2 minutes on each side or until done. Remove chicken from pan and keep warm.
Combine chicken broth, lemon juice, and cornstarch in a small bowl, stirring with a whisk until smooth; this is called a slurry. Add cornstarch slurry and the remaining 1 teaspoon olive oil to pan and bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Cook for about 1 minute or until slightly thickened, stirring constantly.
Place chicken on bed of hot buttered fettuccine noodles and top with sauce. Sprinkle parsley for added color and flavour.
