  1. Place chicken breasts on a sheet of parchment paper. Lay 1 slice prosciutto and 1 sage leaf on each chicken breast. Roll chicken from the short end and secure with wooden skewers.
  2. Heat butter in a skillet over medium-high heat; add rolled chicken and cook until well browned, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Add wine, salt, and pepper; cook until chicken is no longer pink in the center, 8 to 10 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C). Let rest for 5 minutes.

  • Editor's Note:
  • To make the magazine version of this recipe, while chicken rests, let pan juices simmer until slightly reduced, about 3 minutes. Serve with chicken, garnished with herbs. If desired, serve over lightly seasoned orzo.

Fantastic! Family loved it! Only mistake I made was not pounding out the chicken breast to thin it out. It tool forever to cook. Flavors were great though and well worth the wait.

I totally enjoyed making these. Used fresh sage from the garden and the wine broth was super good! Served it with JMRYGH’s “Oven Roasted Potatoes” and fresh green beans. It sort of felt like ...

Delicious! I didn't have sage, so left it out. Added in mozzarella and roasted red peppers.

I followed the recipe except I omitted the sage for allergy reasons and added sun dried tomato’s and Swiss cheese prior to roll up. I tied the rolls with string and grilled until done. Very good.

This was good; I used a chardonnay for the white wine. It didn't blow me away but good just the same. Didn't have fresh sage so sprinkled the chicken with dried before adding the prosciutto. ...
