Chicken Marsala

One of my favorite moms, VW of One Happy Dog Speaks is hosting this week's Carnival of the Recipes! (She also has her brand spanking new site up!)

Chicken Marsala

16 fresh sage leaves
8 large thin slices of prosciutto
8 chicken cutlets
2 TBS all-purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
Garlic powder to taste
1 TBS olive oil
3 TBS butter
3/4 cup Marsala (wine)
2 TBS chopped fresh parsley
2 TBS capers in brine, coarsely chopped (this is optional for me)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place 2 sage leaves in the center of each piece of prosciutto, then wrap each cutlet in the prosciutto.

Put flour on a plate and season with pepper and garlic powder. Dredge the cutlets in flour.

Heat oil and 1 TBS butter in a skilled. Once butter is foaming, add 4 cutlets, seam-side down. Cook over medium-high heat until golden brown, about three minutes per side. Transfer to a baking dish. Add another TBS of butter and brown the remaining cutlets.

Once all the cutlets are golden brown and transferred to a baking dish, cook in the oven for 8 minutes.

Meanwhile, reduce pan heat to medium-low and add the Marsala. Stir constantly and scrap the bottom of the pan. Simmer for three minutes, then add the capers (optional) and parsley. Stir in the remaining butter.

Serve over your favorite pasta. Add a fresh salad and Italian bread.

I love sage. Sage makes so many things better.

My husband LOVES this dish! I'm going to try it when we get back. I've not been able to find a good recipe.
