Chicken Prosciutto

One chicken breast butterflied and sliced thoroughly.  Top with 3/4 sage leaf on each side and cover with 2 slices of prosciutto.

Season with salt and pepper. In a saute pan, roast the breast using a tablespoon of butter and a tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Roast until brown on both sides and then set it to the side.

Deglaze the cooking fat with 1 cup of white wine and a good pinch of fresh chopped parsley. Reduce the mixture.

On the side, saute two handfuls of fresh spinach until wilted, 4 garlic cloves chopped and 2 tablespoons of ExtraVirgin Olive Oil. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Display the spinach on the bottom, then the chicken and finish with the wine reduction over the top.
