prosciutto & sage wrapped, pan fried chicken
This post is not for the vegetarians, the vegans, or the squeamish. I have warned you.
You have been warned.
Yes, there is raw chicken in this post. I did my best not to make it look unappetizing, but it's raw chicken so there's only so much a girl can do in one post. With that said, I'd like to introduce you to todays deliciously succulent dish. I know it's cruel of me to only give out one recipe at a time, but there's excitement in the suspense of it all.
Let's be real for a second though, I already talk way too much for a cooking blog as it is & I doubt anyone would continue reading the post if it went on for all eight recipes. So really if you think about it, I'm doing everyone a favor here.
Alright, down to business. Now I'm going to stress this, the two main keys to this recipe are a great marination, & fresh sage leaves. Please do not use the dried stuff, I beg of you. If they don't have fresh sage at the grocery store, buy a sage plant from your local nursery. This is what it has to look like though, big, beautiful, thick green leaves.
Isn't it gorgeous? I think it's gorgeous. You can't see this from the picture, but those leaves are thick & soft & fuzzy. Odd for a leaf, but so yummy. Right, down to the recipe.
Ingredients: - 2 chicken breasts - 4 prosciutto slices - 4 large, fresh sage leaves - 200g flour- 1 orange, juiced - 4 tbs olive oil - 1/2 tsp salt - 1/2 tsp pepper - 1 tbs soya sauce - 2 tsp dijon mustard - 1 tsp sugar - 1/2 lemon, juiced
Directions: - combine the orange juice, lemon juice, oil, mustard, sugar, salt & pepper & soya sauce in a bowl, mix & then add the chicken. - wrap the bowl well & place in the fridge. Leave it to marinate over night. - when ready to cook, slice the chicken breasts in half lengthways and from the thins side. What you're trying to achieve is four pieces of chicken that look a little thinner than normal. - place a sage leaf on the centre of each chicken breast & then wrap it with a piece of prosciutto. - place the flour in a bowl, and then dip the wrapped chicken breasts into the flour. Dust off all the excess, all they need is a light coating. - place a frying plan on the cooker, turn the heat to medium-high & add 2 tbs of oil. - cook the chicken 4 to 5 minutes per side. - lay the chicken on some paper kitchen towel for a few seconds per side before serving to remove any extra oil.
(part of the dinner table, can you see the shrimp behind the chicken?)
