    A quick and easy chicken dish with loads of flavour! I actually didn't have sage so I sprinkled lots of dried herbs over the chicken before rolling. I made a pan sauce with the white wine by adding some grainy mustard, milk and butter. Husband loved it. Thank you!  -  14 Jun 2013

    Saltimbocca in Italian literally means "jumps in the mouth", and that is just what this did! Tender and juicy, and very flavorful chicken dish. Traditionally this is served as a "secondo", or main course - after the "primo" or pasta course. Being that it was just our family, we ate this next to our pasta! Grazie, Aldo, for this authentic Italian recipe!  -  12 Apr 2016  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
