Chicken Saltimbocca

Instructions

Preheat oven to 400°. Line a baking sheet with a rack.

Cook tagliatelle in a large pot of boiling salted water according to package directions; drain.

Halve breasts horizontally. Pound each half with flat side of a meat mallet to even thickness for cutlets.

Lay a slice of prosciutto on cutting board, top with a cutlet, a second slice of prosciutto, and enough sage leaves to cover. Repeat layering with second cutlet. Starting at tapered end, roll up cutlets and secure with toothpicks.

Heat oil and 1 Tbsp. butter in a sauté pan over medium-high until butter melts. Add chicken and cook, turning to brown all sides, 6–8 minutes total; transfer to prepared baking sheet and bake, 8–10 minutes to finish cooking. Let chicken rest 5 minutes before serving.

Sauté shallots in same pan over medium-high until softened, 3 minutes; add wine and simmer until reduced by half, 3–4 minutes. Stir in roasted peppers, broth, lemon juice, and capers to heat through, about 2 minutes.

Off heat, stir in remaining 3 Tbsp. butter until it emulsifies and sauce thickens. Add minced sage; season sauce with salt and pepper.

Toss tagliatelle with sauce; serve with chicken.

Halve chicken breasts horizontally, pound each into a thin cutlet, and wrap with sage and prosciutto.

To get the woodsy flavor of sage in every bite of chicken, layer each cutlet with enough leaves to cover.
