Place chicken breasts on a sheet of baking parchment. Lay 1 slice of prosciutto and 1 sage leaf on each breast. Roll chicken up from the short end like a swiss roll, and secure with wooden skewers.
Heat the butter in a frying pan over a medium high heat. Add the chicken and cook it for a couple of minutes on all sides, until well browned. Add wine and season with salt and pepper. Continue to cook until chicken is cooked through, about 8 to 10 minutes.
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
