  1. Flatten the chicken breasts as much as possible. In a small bowl, combine the oil and garlic and mix together; brush mixture onto each chicken piece. Season with salt, pepper and sage and top with thin layers of prosciutto. Roll up and secure with toothpicks.
  2. In a large skillet, melt butter over medium high heat and saute rolls evenly on all sides until nicely browned, about 10 minutes.
  3. Pour in the wine; season with fresh sage, salt and pepper. Reduce heat to medium low, over and simmer until rolls are cooked through and tender, 15 to 20 minutes. Thicken wine sauce with cornstarch and water as needed, heat through and serve.

Not bad dish... the only thing I suggest is to go to a real Italian deli and get REAL procuitto!! Make sure it's imported from Italy (it will be saltier so cut down a little on the added salt). ...

I made this recipe for my family and we all really enjoyed it. FYI - I also tried it with chicken thighs but it came out too greasy.

I LOVE this recipe. The flavors go so well together, and making it gave me great ideas on how to experiment with other dishes. The rolls look so pretty too, it is a good recipe for company. T...

This was delicious. I didn't roll the chicken, but instead placed the prosciutto on top of the chicken. That way I didn't have to worry about the roll coming undone, or the toothpicks. It tur...

This was delicious! Listening to other reviews, I did not add any salt and I put provolone inside the rolls. I would make another recommendation, too. When the chicken is browned, I would rem...

This is an awesome recipe - very tasty. Everyone loved these. A single one of these is much more filling that what you would think. I used the same amount of ingredients called for, but spread...

This is a VERY flavorful dish. (If you don't like salty, be sure not to add any salt, as the prosciutto is quite salty.) The resulting sauce was excellent over angel hair pasta. The sage reall...

Superb!! I tried not to roll the chicken and it worked perfectly. Also good with beef.

This recipe is delicious - especially with added mushrooms! I also changed a few things to cut down on the fat content. For 3 chicken breasts I mixed 1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil with 1 Tablespoo...
