  • 8 ounces angel hair pasta

  • 6 quarts of water

  • 2 Tablespoons salt


Chicken Saltimbocca

  • 2 each Springer Mountain Farms © chicken breast, boneless/skinless

  • 1 bunch fresh sage

  • 6 ounces shaved prosciutto

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour

  • ½ cup garlic, sliced

  • 1 teaspoon anchovies

  • 1 cup pinot grigio

  • ½ cup butter

  • 12 ounces lemon juice

  • 1 cup olive oil

  • salt and pepper



Preparation

For the Angel Hair Pasta:

  1. In a medium sized pot over high heat, add both water and salt; stir and bring to a boil

  2. Add pasta and cook for 3-4 minutes while occasionally stirring, ensuring the pasta doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pot and the pasta itself doesn’t clump together

  3. Once done and the pasta is al dente, set aside to be combined with the Chicken Saltimbocca sauce

For the Chicken Saltimbocca:

  1. On a clean cutting board, slice chicken breast lengthwise to make two thin pieces

  2. Lay out one slice of chicken on the board, layer on top whole fresh sage leaves to loosely cover. Finally, cover on top with the other slice of chicken making a chicken sage sandwich, of sorts

  3. Wrap the chicken sage sandwich with prosciutto

  4. Dredge prosciutto wrapped chicken with flour

  5. In a 12” skillet over medium-high heat, add oil and sear wrapped chicken for 4-5 minutes per side or until the chicken has an internal temperature of 165F. Remove from pan and set aside.

  6. Turn heat down to medium, carefully remove oil so roughly 2 tablespoons of oil remain; add both garlic and anchovies to the pan and cook while stirring for 4-6 minutes or until anchovies dissolve.

  7. Deglaze with white wine and reduce by half

  8. Now bring the heat down to medium-low, add butter and cook until content is reduced to a glaze. Once the sauce is at the desired thickness, add lemon juice and toss in Angel Hair Pasta

  9. Once sauce and Angel Hair Pasta are well integrated set aside for Plating

Plating:

  1. At the center of a large plate, add Angel Hair Pasta

  2. Next, slice Chicken Saltimbocca on the biased and add on top of the pasta

  3. Garnish as desired

  4. Now serve and enjoy!
