Directions

  1. In a shallow dish, combine flour, salt and pepper. Set aside.

  2. Place 1 sage leaf on each piece of chicken and wrap with a piece of ham. Press gently to adhere. Dredge meat in the seasoned flour, tapping off the excess.

  3. In a large non-stick skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat and cook the meat until golden brown and cooked through, about 4 min. per side. Transfer to a plate and keep warm. Add onion to skillet and cook until golden, about 8 min. Stir in broth and cook until liquid is reduced and slightly thickened, about 5 min. Stir in balsamic vinegar. Serve onion mixture over chicken.

Tip

This dish is inspired by a traditional Italian recipe that wraps the chicken with prosciutto to add flavour and tenderness, but our version uses ham for a more kid-friendly taste.
